Answer :

Sample Space = Cards marked with 2-digit numbers


= {10,11,12,……..,99)


No. of Sample Space = n(S) = 90


(a) Let P be the event of getting a card marked with 2-digit numbers which is divisible by 10.


favourable elementary events = {10,20,30,…………,90}


no. of favourable elementary events = n(P) = 9


Thus, Probability of getting a card marked with number divisible by 10 = n(P)/n(S) = 9/90 = 1/10


(b) Let P be the event of getting a card marked with 2-digit square numbers.


favourable elementary events = {16,25,36,…….,81}


no. of favourable elementary events = n(P) = 6


Thus, Probability of getting a card marked with number divisible by 10 = n(P)/n(S) = 6/90 = 1/15


(c) Let P be the event of getting a card marked with 2-digit prime numbers less than 25.


favourable elementary events = {11,13,17,19,23}


no. of favourable elementary events = n(P) = 5


Thus, Probability of getting a card marked with number divisible by 10 = n(P)/n(S) = 5/90 = 1/18
