(b) \(\frac{1}{13}\)

(c) \(\frac{4}{13}\)

(d) \(\frac{2}{13}\)

(a) \(\frac{12}{13}\)

II. Answer the Following Questions

Question 6.

1500 families with 2 children were selected randomly and the following data were recorded.

Compute the probability of a family chosen at random having one girl.

Solution:

Total number of families = 1500

∴ n(S) = 1500

Let E be the event of getting one girl

n(E) = 814

P(E) = \(\frac{n(E)}{n(S)}\)

= \(\frac{814}{1500}\)

= \(\frac{407}{750}\)

Question 7.

The record of weather station shows that out of the part 250 consecutive days its whether forecast were correct 175 time. What is the probability that it was not correct on a given data?

Solution:

n(S) = 250

Let E be the event of getting whether forecast were correct

n(E) = 175

P(E) = \(\frac{n(E)}{n(S)}\)

= \(\frac{175}{250}\)

= \(\frac{7}{10}\)

Forecast was not correct on a given day = 1 – P(E)

= 1 – \(\frac{7}{10}\)

= \(\frac{10-7}{10}\)

= \(\frac{3}{10}\)

Question 8.

If A coin is tossed 200 times and is found that a tail comes up for 120 times. Find the probability of getting a tail.

Solution:

Number of trials = 200

n(S) = 200

Let E be the event of getting a tail

n(E) = 120

p(E) = \(\frac{n(E)}{n(S)}\)

= \(\frac{120}{200}\)

= \(\frac{12}{20}\)

= \(\frac{3}{5}\)

Question 9.

A bag contains 5 red balls and some blue balls. If the probability of drawing a blue ball from the bag is thrice that of drawing a red ball, then find the number of blue balls in the bag.

Solution:

Let the number of blue balls be “x”

Total number of balls = 5 + x

∴ n(S) = 5 + x

Let B be the event of drawing a blue ball and R be the event of drawing a red ball

Given P(B) = 3P(R)

∴ x = 15

Number of blue balls = 15

Question 10.

Find the probability that a non leap year selected at random will have 53 fridays.

Solution:

No. of days in a non leap year = 365 days

This year contain 52 weeks and one day

Sample space = {Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat}

n(S) = 7

Let A be the event of getting a friday

n(A) = 1

P(A) = \(\frac{n(A)}{n(S)}\)

= \(\frac{1}{7}\)
