MCQ

What is the probability of the event that a number chosen from 1 to 50 is a prime number?

• 3/10

• 1/2

• 1/4

• 3/25

#### Solution

3/10

Explanation:

S = {1, 2, ..... , 50}

∴ n(S) = 50

Let A be the event of getting a prime number.

∴ A = {2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17 ,19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47}

∴ n(A) = 15

∴ P(A) = ("n"("A"))/("n"("S")) = 15/50 = 3/10
