5. The adjoining pie chart shows the expenditure of a country on various sports during year 2012. Study the pie chart carefully and answer the following questions:

ML Aggarwal Solutions Mathematics Class 8 Chapter 19 - 32

(i) What percent of total expenditure is spent on cricket?

(ii) How much percent more is spent on hockey than that on tennis?

(iii) If the total amount spent on sports in 2012 is Rs 1, 80, 00, 000 then find the amount spent on Badminton

(iv) If the total amount spent on sports in 2012 is Rs 2, 40, 00, 000 then find the amount spent on cricket and hockey together.

Solution:

The given pie chart represents the expenditure of a country on various sports during year 2012

(i) Given that expenditure on a cricket = 900

So,

(90 / 3600) × 100% = 25%

Therefore, 25% expenditure is spent on cricket

(ii) Given that expenditure on a hockey = 750

So,

(70 / 3600) × 100% = (125 / 6)% =
ML Aggarwal Solutions Mathematics Class 8 Chapter 19 - 33%

Expenditure on tennis = 500

Hence, (50 / 3600) × 100% = (125 / 9)% = 13.9%

So,

(125 / 6) – (125 / 9) = 125 / 18

= (375 – 250) / 18

= 125 / 18

= 6.95% more

Therefore, 6.95% more is spent on hockey than that on tennis

(iii) Total amount spent on sports = Rs 1, 80, 00, 000

Total amount spent on Badminton = Rs 1, 80, 00,000 × (60 / 3600)

= Rs 30,00,000

(iv) If the total amount spent on sports = 2,40,00,000

Total amount spent on cricket and hockey together = 900 + 750

= 1650

= (1650 / 3600) × 2, 40, 00,000

= 1, 10, 00, 000

6. The adjoining pie chart shows the number of students enrolled in class VI to class X of a school.

ML Aggarwal Solutions Mathematics Class 8 Chapter 19 - 34

If 1440 students are enrolled from VI to X, then answer the following questions:

(i) How many students are enrolled in class VIII?

(ii) How many students are more in class IX than in class X?

(iii) What is the sum of students enrolled in VII and VIII?

(iv) Find the ratio of students enrolled in VI to students enrolled in X

Solution:

The given pie chart represents the enrolment of students from class VI to class X in a school.

Total number of students enrolled from VI to X = 1440 students

(i) Enrolment of class VIII = (85 / 3600) × 1440 = 340 students

(ii) Difference in X and IX class enrolment = 750 – 500

= 250

(25 / 3600) × 1440 = 100 students

Therefore, 100 students are more in class IX than in class X

(iii) Sum of students enrolled in VII and VIII classes = 700 + 850

= 1550

(155 / 3600) × 1440 = 620 students

Therefore, the sum of students enrolled in class VI and VIII = 620 students

(iv) Ratio between the students enrolled in VI to students enrolled in X classes = 800: 500

= 8: 5

Therefore, the ratio between the students enrolled in VI to students enrolled in X classes is 8: 5

Exercise 19.3

ML Aggarwal Solutions Mathematics Class 8 Chapter 19 - 35

Solution:

(i) The outcomes in spinning wheel = A, A, A, B, C, D

(ii) The outcomes in drawing a ball from a bag containing 5 identical balls of different colours = White, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow

2. A die is rolled once. Find the probability of getting

(i) an even number

(ii) a multiple of 3

(iii) not a multiple of 3

Solution:

Total outcomes of a die when rolled once:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 = 6

(i) An even number: 2, 4, 6

i.e, Favourable outcomes = 3

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 3 / 6

= 1 / 2

(ii) Multiple of 3 = 3, 6

i.e, Favourable outcomes = 2

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 2 / 6

= 1 / 3

(iii) Not a multiple of 3 = 1, 2, 4, 5

i.e Favourable outcomes = 4

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 4 / 6

= 2 / 3

3. Two coins are tossed together. Find the probability of getting

(i) two tails

(ii) atleast one tail

(iii) no tail

Solution:

The total outcomes, when two coins are tossed together = 2 × 2

= 4

Therefore, outcomes are,

HH, HT, TH, TT

(i) Favourable outcomes of getting two tails = 1

Hence,

Probability P(E) = 1 / 4

(ii) Favourable outcomes of getting atleast one tail = TH, HT, TT

= 3

Hence,

Probability P(E) = 3 / 4

(iii) Favourable outcomes of getting no tail = HH

= 1

Hence,

Probability P(E) = 1 / 4

4. Three coins are tossed together. Find the probability of getting

(i) atleast two heads

(ii) atleast one tail

(iii) atmost one tail

Solution:

Three coins are tossed together

Hence,

Total outcomes = 8

= HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, TTH, TTT, THT

(i) Favourable outcomes of getting atleast two heads = HHH, HHT, HTH, THH

= 4 in numbers

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = (Number of favourable outcome) / (Number of possible outcome)

= 4 / 8

= 1 / 2

(ii) Favourable outcomes of getting atleast one tail = HHT, HTH, HTT, TTT, THH, THT, TTH

= 7 in numbers

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = (Number of favourable outcome) / (Number of possible outcome)

= 7 / 8

(iii) Favorable outcomes of getting atmost one tail = HHH, HHT, HTH, THH

= 4 in numbers

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = (Number of favourable outcome) / (Number of possible outcome)

= 4 / 8

= 1 / 2

5. Two dice are rolled simultaneaously. Find the probability of getting

(i) the sum as 7

(ii) the sum as 3 or 4

(iii) prime numbers on both the dice.

Solution:

Two dice are rolled simultaneously, then

Total outcomes = 6 × 6

= 36

(i) Sum as 7 = (1, 6), (2, 5), (3, 4), (4, 3), (5, 2), (6, 1)

= 6

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = (Favourable outcome) / (Total outcome)

= 6 / 36

= 1 / 6

(ii) The sum as 3 or 4 = (1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 1), (2, 2), (3, 1)

= 5

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = (Favourable outcome) / (Total outcome)

= 5 / 36

(iii) Prime numbers on both the side = (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 5), (3, 2), (3, 3), (3, 5), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 5)

= 9

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = (Favourable outcome) / (Total outcome)

= 9 / 36

= 1 / 4

6. A box contains 600 screws, one tenth are rusted. One screw is taken out at random from the box. Find the probability that it is

(i) a rusted screw

(ii) not a rusted screw

Solution:

Given

Rusted screw = (1 / 10) of 600

= (1 / 10) × 600

= 60 seconds

(i) Favourable outcomes of picking rusted screw = 60

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 60 / 600

= 1 / 10

(ii) Probability (of not rusted screw) = 1 – Probability (of rusted screw)

= 1 – 1 / 10

= (10 – 1) / 10

= 9 / 10

7. A letter is chosen from the word ‘TRIANGLE’. What is the probability that it is a vowel?

Solution:

Given word,

‘TRIANGLE’

Total number of outcomes = 8

Vowels = I, A, E = 3

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 3 / 8

Hence, the probability of vowel in ‘TRIANGLE’ is 3 / 8

8. A bag contains 5 red, 6 black and 4 white balls. A ball is drawn at random from the bag, find the probability the ball is drawn is

(i) white

(ii) not black

(iii) red or black

(iv) neither red nor black

Solution:

Given

In a bag, there are 5 red, 6 black and 4 white balls.

Then, total number of outcomes = 5 + 6 + 4

= 15

(i) Probability of white ball = 4 / 15

(ii) Probability of not black = 5 + 4

= 9 balls

Therefore,

Probability of not black = 9 / 15 = 3 / 5

(iii) Probability of red or black = 5 + 6

= 11

Therefore,

Probability of red or black = 11 / 15

(iv) Probability of ball which is neither red nor black, i.e, white ball = 4

Therefore,

Probability of ball which is neither red nor black = 4 / 15

9. A box contains 17 cards numbered 1, 2, 3…….., 17 and are mixed thoroughly. A card is drawn at random from the box. Find the probability that the number on that card is

(i) odd

(ii) even

(iii) prime

(iv) divisible by 3

(v) divisible by 2 and 3 both

Solution:

Given

A box contains 17 cards numbered 1 to 17

So, total number of outcomes = 17

(i) Card bearing odd number

(1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17) = 9

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 9 / 17

(ii) Even number

(2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16) = 8

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 8 / 17

(iii) Prime numbers

(2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17) = 7

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 7 / 17

(iv) Numbers divisible by 3

3, 6, 9, 12, 15 = 5

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 5 / 17

(v) Numbers divisible by 2 and 3 both

6, 12 = 2

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 2 / 17

10. A card is drawn from a well-shuffled pack of 52 cards. Find the probability that the card drawn is:

(i) an ace

(ii) a red card

(iii) neither a king nor a queen

(iv) a red face card or an ace

(v) a card of spade

(vi) non-face card of red colour

Solution:

Total number of playing cards = 52

One card is drawn

(i) An ace = 4

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 4 / 52

= 1 / 13

(ii) A red card = 13 + 13 = 26

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 26 / 52

= 1 / 2

(iii) Neither a king nor a queen

Number of cards = 52 – (4 + 4)

= 52 – 8

= 44

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 44 / 52

= 11 / 13

(iv) A red face card = 6

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 6 / 52

= 3 / 26

(v) A card of spade or an ace = 13 + 3

= 16

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 16 / 52

= 4 / 13

(vi) Non-face card of red colour = 26 – 6

= 20

Therefore,

Probability P(E) = 20 / 52

= 5 / 13

11. In a lottery, there are 5 prized tickets and 995 blank tickets. A person buys a lottery ticket. Find the probability of his winning a prize.

Solution:

Given

Number of prized tickets = 5

Number of blank tickets = 995

So, total number of tickets = 5 + 995

= 1000

Probability of prized ticket P(E) = (Number of favourable outcome) / (Number of possible outcome)

= 5 / 1000

= 1 / 200

Therefore, the probability of his winning prize is 1 / 200
