Question

# A bag contains $$15$$ red, $$8$$ blue and several green marbles. A marble is selected at random. The probability of drawing a blue marble is $$\dfrac {1}{5}$$. $$5$$ green marbles are now taken out from the bag. If a marble is now drawn at random, find the probability of drawing a green marble

A
310
B
1235
C
2340
D
1735

Solution

## The correct option is B $$\dfrac {12}{35}$$A bag contains 15 red, 8 blue and several green marbles. A marble is selected at random. The probability of drawing a blue marble is $$\dfrac{1}{5}$$. 5 green marbles are now taken out from the bag. If a marble is now drawn at random,The green marble are $$\dfrac{8}{P(E)}-(15+8)=40-23=17$$if 5 marbles are removed green marbles are $$=17-5=12$$ and total marbles 40-5=35 the probability of drawing a green marbleProbability  is $$P(E)=\dfrac{12}{35}$$Mathematics
