# What is the Probability that a Number Selected from the Numbers 1, 2, 3, ..., 15 is a Multiple of 4? - Mathematics

What is the probability that a number selected from the numbers 1, 2, 3, ..., 15 is a multiple
of 4?

#### Solution

Total no. possible outcomes = 15 {1, 2, 3, …. , 15}

E ⟶ event of getting a multiple of 4

No. of favourable outcomes = 3 {4, 8, 12}

Probability, P(E) ="No.of favorable outcomes"/"Total no.of possible outcomes"

=3/15 =1/5

Is there an error in this question or solution?
