Question 41 Probability Exercise 13.1

A bag contains 5 white balls and 7 red balls. One ball is drawn at random. What is the probability that ball drawn is white?



The possibility that an event will occur is referred to as the probability of the event. In mathematics, this possibility of an event happening is represented by a number between 0 and 1.

Given: A bag contains 7 red and 5 white balls and a ball is drawn at random

Required to find: Probability that the ball drawn is white

Total number of balls 7 + 5 = 12

Total number of white balls is 5

We know that Probability = Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes

Thus, the probability of getting a white ball = 5/12
