ConceptType of Event - Complementry

#### Question

Thirty identical cards are marked with numbers 1 to 30. If one card is drawn at random, find the probability that it is:

a multiple of 3 or 5

#### Solution

There are 30 aaards from which one card is drawn.

Total number of elementary events=n(s)=30

From numbers 1 to 30, there are 14 numbers  which is multiple of 3 or 5 i.e {3,5,6,9,10,12,15,18,20,21,24,25,27,30}  favorable number of event =n(E)=14

Probability of selecting a card with a multiple of 3 or 5 = (n(E))/(n(s))=14/30=7/15

Is there an error in this question or solution?
