- 1. ppr maths nbk 7 . PROBABILITY 7.1 Probability of an event a. The probability of an event A is defined by n( A) P(A) = and 0 ≤ P(A) ≤ 1 n( S ) Where S is the sample space which consists of all the possible outcomes, which are equally likely to occur in an experiment and A subset S. b. An event with probability 0 is an impossible event. c. An event with probability 1 is a confirmed event. Example 1 A bag contains 4 white and 6 black balls.A ball is chosen at random from the bag.Find the probability of chosing i. a white ball ii. a black ball iii. a red ball Solution n(S) = 10 i. Let A be the event of choosing a white ball. n(A) = 4 n( A) 4 2 P(A) = = = n( S ) 10 5 ii. Let B be the event of chosing a black ball. n(B) = 6 n( B ) 6 3 P(B) = = = n( S ) 10 5
- 2. ppr maths nbk iii. Let C be the event of chosing a red ball. n(C) = 0 n(C ) 0 P (C) = = =0 n( S ) 10 d. If an experiment is repeated for n times and P(A) is the probability that event A occurs, then the expected number of times that event A occurs is n x P(A). 7.2 Probability of the compliment of an event The compliment of an event A, that is A’ , is an event consisting of outcomes thar are not in A but in S. P(A’) = 1 – P(A) P(A) + P(A’) = 1 Example 3 In an archery training, the probability of an archer hitting the target is . Find the 8 probability that he misses the target. Solution Let A be the event of hitting the target. 3 Then, P(A) = 8 3 5 Thus, P(A’) = 1 - = 8 8 7.3 Probability of a combined event a. Probability of the combined event A or B n( AU B ) P( A or B) = n( S ) b. Probability of the combined event A and B n( A I B ) P(A and B) = n( S )
- 3. ppr maths nbk Example Two fair dice are rolled simultaneously.Find the probability that i. one of the numbers obtained is 5 or the sum of the numbers is 7. ii. one of the numbers obtained is 5 and the sum of the numbers is 7. Solution N(S) = 36 Let A = Event that one of the numbers obtained is 5 = {(1,5),(2,5), (3,5),(4,5),,(6,5),(5,6),(5,5),(5,4),(5,3),(5,2),(5,1)} And B= Event that the sum of the numbers is 7 = {(1,6),(2,5),(3,4),(4,3),(5,2),(6,1)} i. A U B = {(1,5),(2,5), (3,5),(4,5),(5,5),(6,5),(5,6), (5,4),(5,3), (5,2),(5,1),(1,6),(3,4),(4,3),(6,1)} n(A U B) = 15 Probability that one of the numbers obtained is 5 or the sum of the numbers is 7 n( A U B) 15 5 = P(A U B) = = = n( S ) 36 12 ii. A I B = {(2,5),(5,2)} n(A I B )= 2 Probability that one of the numbers obtained is 5 and the sum of the numbers is7 AI B 2 1 = P(A I B ) = n = = n( S ) 36 18

If a ball is chosen at random from the bag, find the probability that the ball chosen is neither red nor yellow. 6. A box contains 20 green cards and some red cards..If a card is picked at random, 5 the probability of picking a green card is . If 12 more green cards are added 9 into the box, find the probability of picking a green card. 7. An integer is selected at random from the numbers 1 to 10. Find the probability of selecting the numbers 8 or an odd number. 8. A jar contains 1 yellow , 1 red and 2 blue marbles. 2 marbles are chosen at random from the jar one after another with replacement . Find the probability that the first marble chosen is red and the second marble is blue. 9. A box contains 15 red balls and some some white balls. If a ball is picked at 3 random , the probability of obtaining a red ball is . Then, if 10 green balls are 10 added into the box , and a ball is picked at random, find the probability of obtaining a red ball. 10.
