The Total no. of balls = 5+8+4 = 17 P(E) = (Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes) (i) Total number of red balls = 5 P (red ball) = 5/17 = 0.29 (ii) Total number of white balls = 8 P (white ball) = 8/17 = 0.47 (iii) Total number of green balls = 4 P (green ball) = 4/17 = 0.23 ∴ P (not green) = 1-P(green ball) = 1-(4/7) = 0.77
