Question

# A box contains $$25$$ cards numbered from $$1$$ to $$25$$. A card is drawn at random from the bad. Find the probability that the number on the drawn card is divisible by $$2$$ or $$3$$.

Solution

## Total numbers of cards $$=25$$The favourable outcome = numbers divisible by $$2=\left\{ 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24\right\}$$The favourable outcome = number divisible by $$3=\left\{ 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24 \right\}$$Total number of favorable outcomes $$=16$$( Note: count $$6, 12, 18$$ and $$24$$ are common, so consider only one set )Probability is given by,$$\displaystyle P(A)$$$$=\dfrac{\text{no. of possible outcomes}}{\text{No. of total outcomes}}$$Now, $$P($$ drawn card is divisible by $$2$$ or $$3)=16/25$$MathematicsRS AgarwalStandard X
