The total numbers of outcomes i.e. pens = 144 Given, numbers of defective pens = 20 ∴ The numbers of non defective pens = 144-20 = 124 P(E) = (Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes) (i) Total numbers events in which she will buy them = 124 So, P (buying) = 124/144 = 31/36 = 0.86 (ii) Total numbers events in which she will not buy them = 20 So, P (not buying) = 20/144 = 5/36 = 0.138
