Question 2.

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?

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

Answer:

Total number of marbles = 6

Total number of possible outcomes = 6

(i) Probability of drawing marble with number 2

p (2) = \(\frac{1}{6}\)

(ii) Probability of drawing marble with number 5

p (5) = \(\frac{1}{6}\)

Question 3.

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

Answer:

Since there are two faces of a coin head (H) and tail (T), when a coin is tossed, then either a ‘H’ or a ‘T’ comes.

successfully achieved outcome = 1

Total number of possible outcomes= 2

[ Head + Tail = 1 + 1 = 2]

Required probability = \(\frac{1}{2}\)
