Find the probability that in a random arrangement of the letters of the word ‘UNIVERSITY’, the two I’s do not come together.

Answer :

given: word “UNIVERSITY”

formula:


we have to find the probability that two I’s do not come together


total possible outcomes for arrangement of alphabets are 10!


therefore n(S)= 10!


let E be the event that both I’s come together


n(E)= 2! × 9!


probability of occurrence of this event is




Let E’ be the event that both I’s do not come together


Therefore, the probability that two I’s do not come together is


P(E’) =1-P(E)
