A bag contains 8 red, 6 white and 4 black balls. A ball is drawn at random from the bag. Find the probability that the drawn ball is

(i) red or white

(ii) not black

(iii) neither white or black

Answer :

Total number of possible outcomes, n(S) = 18

(i) Number of favorable outcomes, n(E) = 14

(ii) Number of events of getting a black ball, n(E) = 4

Probability of not getting a black ball = 1 – P(E)

(iii) Number of favorable outcomes, n(E) = 8
