Question 26 Probability - Exercise 15.1

A jar contains 24 marbles, some are green and others are blue. If a marble is drawn at random from the jar, the probability that it is green is ⅔. Find the number of blue balls in the jar.


Total marbles = 24

Let the total green marbles = x

So, the total blue marbles = 24-x

P(getting green marble) = x/24

From the question, x/24 = ⅔

So, the total green marbles = 16

And, the total blue marbles = 24-x = 8
