Solved probability problems and solutions are given here for a concept with clear understanding.

Students can get a fair idea on the probability questions which are provided with the detailed step-by-

step answers to every question.

Solved probability problems with solutions:

1.

**The graphic above shows a container with 4 blue triangles, 5 green squares and 7 red circles. A
**

single object is drawn at random from the container.

Match the following events with the corresponding probabilities:

(i) The objects is not a circle (a) 5/16

(ii) The objects is a triangle (b) 4/16

(iii) The objects is not a triangle (c) 7/16

(iv) The objects is not a square (d) 9/16

(v) The objects is a circle (e) 12/16

(vi) The objects is a square (f) 11/16

Solution:

Number of blue triangles in a container = 4

Number of green squares = 5

Number of red circles = 7

Total number of objects = 4 + 5 + 7 = 16

4)/16 .7/16 = (16 .7)/16 = 9/16 (ii) The objects is a triangle: P(the object is a triangle) = Number of triangle/Total number of objects = 4/16 (iii) The objects is not a triangle: P(the object is a triangle) = Number of triangles/Total number of objects = 4/16 P(the object is not a triangle) = 1 .P(the object is a circle) = 1 .(i) The objects is not a circle: P(the object is a circle) = Number of circles/Total number of objects = 7/16 P(the object is not a circle) = 1 .P(the object is a triangle) = 1 .4/16 = (16 .

5/16 = (16 .5)/16 = 11/16 (v) The objects is a circle: P(the object is a circle) = Number of circles/Total number of objects = 7/16 (vi) The objects is a square: P(the object is a square) = Number of squares/Total number of objects = 5/16 Match the following events with the corresponding probabilities are shown below: (i) The objects is not a circle (d) 9/16 .P(the object is a square) = 1 .= 12/16 (iv) The objects is not a square: P(the object is a square) = Number of squares/Total number of objects = 5/16 P(the object is not a square) = 1 .

Match each event with its probability. A single card is drawn at random from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. Note: fractional probabilities have been reduced to lowest terms. Consider the ace as the highest card. (i) The card is a diamond (a) 1/2 (ii) The card is a red king (b) 1/13 (iii) The card is a king or queen (c) 1/26 (iv) The card is either a red or an ace (d) 12/13 (v) The card is not a king (e) 2/13 (vi) The card is a five or lower (f) 1/4 (vii) The card is a king (g) 4/13 (viii) The card is black (h) 7/13 Solution: Total number of playing cards = 52 (i) The card is a diamond: Number of diamonds in a deck of 52 cards = 13 P(the card is a diamond) .(ii) The objects is a triangle (b) 4/16 (iii) The objects is not a triangle (e) 12/16 (iv) The objects is not a square (f) 11/16 (v) The objects is a circle (c) 7/16 (vi) The objects is a square (a) 5/16 ` 2.

= Number of diamonds/Total number of playing cards = 13/52 = 1/4 (ii) The card is a red king: Number of red king in a deck of 52 cards = 2 P(the card is a red king) = Number of red kings/Total number of playing cards = 2/52 = 1/26 (iii) The card is a king or queen: Number of kings in a deck of 52 cards = 4 Number of queens in a deck of 52 cards = 4 Total number of king or queen in a deck of 52 cards = 4 + 4 = 8 P(the card is a king or queen) = Number of king or queen/Total number of playing cards = 8/52 = 2/13 (iv) The card is either a red card or an ace: Total number of red card or an ace in a deck of 52 cards = 28 P(the card is either a red card or an ace) .

1)/13 = 12/13 (vi) The card is a five or lower: Number of cards is a five or lower = 16 P (the card is a five or lower) = Number of card is a five or lower/Total number of playing cards = 16/52 = 4/13 .= Number of cards which is either a red card or an ace/Total number of playing cards = 28/52 = 7/13 (v) The card is not a king: Number of kings in a deck of 52 cards = 4 P (the card is a king) = Number of kings/Total number of playing cards = 4/52 = 1/13 P (the card is not a king) = 1 .1/13 = (13 .P (the card is a king) = 1 .

(vii) The card is a king: Number of kings in a deck of 52 cards = 4 P(the card is a king) = Number of kings/Total number of playing cards = 4/52 = 1/13 (viii) The card is black: Number of black cards in a deck of 52 cards = 26 P(the card is black) = Number of black cards/Total number of playing cards = 26/52 = 1/2 Match the following events with the corresponding probabilities are shown below: (i) The card is a diamond (f) 1/4 (ii) The card is a red king (c) 1/26 (iii) The card is a king or queen (e) 2/13 (iv) The card is either a red or an ace (h) 7/13 (v) The card is not a king (d) 12/13 (vi) The card is a five or lower (g) 4/13 (vii) The card is a king (b) 1/13 (viii) The card is black (a) 1/2 .
