It is given that the total number of red balls = 5 Let the total number of blue balls = x So, the total no. of balls = x+5 P(E) = (Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes) ∴ P (drawing a blue ball) = [x/(x+5)] ——–(i) Similarly, P (drawing a red ball) = [5/(x+5)] ——–(i) From equation (i) and (ii) x = 10 So, the total number of blue balls = 10
