Question

Hundred identical cards are numbered from 1 to 100. The cards The cards are well shuffled and then a card is drawn. Find the probability that the number on card drawn is:

a multiple of 5

Solution

There are 100 cards from which one card is drawn.

Total number of elementary events - n(s)-100

From numbers 1 to 100, threr are 20 numbers which are multiple of i.e {5,10,15,20,25,30,,35,40,45,50,55,60,65,70,75,80,85,90,95,100}  favorable number of event =n(E)=20

Probability of selecting card with a multiple of 5 =

(n(E))/(n(s))-20/100-1/5

Is there an error in this question or solution?
