  1. There are 6 marbles in a box with numbers from 1 to 6 marked on each of them.

(i) What is the probability of drawing a marble with number 2?

Solution:

Given,

Total number of marbles marked with the number from 1 to 6 = 6

Now,

Probability of drawing a marble with number 2 = Number of favourable outcomes/

Number of possible outcomes

= (1/6)

Hence, the required probability is (1/6)

(ii) What is the probability of drawing a marble with number 5?

Solution:

Given,

There are 6 marbles in the box with numbers from 1 to 6 are marked.

Now, number or marble marked with 5 = 1

Now,

Probability of drawing a marble with number 5 = Number of favourable outcomes/

Number of possible outcomes

= (1/6)

Hence, the required probability is (1/6)

  1. A coin is flipped to decide which team starts the game. What is the probability that your team will start?

Solution:

We know that a coin has two faces one is Head (H) and another one is Tail (T).

Now, one team can choose either Head or Tail.

So, Sample space (Sn) = 2

The probability of our team starts first= Number of favourable outcomes/

Number of possible outcomes

= ½

Hence, the required probability is (1/2)
