 # RD Sharma Solutions Class 8 Mathematics Solutions for Data Handling Probability Exercise 26.1 in Chapter 26 - Data Handling Probability

A bag contains 3 red balls and 5 black balls. A ball is drawn at random fromthe bag. What is the probability that the ball drawn is:

(i) red

(ii)black

(i) Red

Total numbers of red balls = 3 Number of black balls = 5

Total number of balls = 3 + 5 = 8

Probability of getting a red ball is = Total number of red balls/Total number of balls

= 3/8

∴ Probability of getting a red ball is 3/8

(ii) Black

Total numbers of red balls = 3 Number of black balls = 5

Total number of balls = 3 + 5 = 8

Probability of getting a black ball is = Total number of black balls/Total number of balls

= 5/8

∴ Probability of getting a black ball is 5/8
