Question

# A box contains 6 tickets. Two of the tickets carry a prize of Rs. 5/- each, the other four a prize of Rs.1/-. If one ticket is drawn. The mean value of prize is

A
Rs. 2.5
B
Rs. 7/3
C
Rs. 5/3
D
Rs.4/3

Solution

## The correct option is B Rs. $$7/3$$The probability of drawing a ticket out of six is $$\dfrac{1}{6}$$Hence the mean prize if one ticket is drawn is$$(5(\dfrac{1}{6}))+(5(\dfrac{1}{6}))+(\dfrac{1}{6})+((\dfrac{1}{6}))+(\dfrac{1}{6}))+((\dfrac{1}{6}))$$$$=2\times[5\times\dfrac{1}{6}]+\dfrac{4}{6}$$$$=\dfrac{10}{6}+\dfrac{4}{6}$$$$=\dfrac{14}{6}$$$$=\dfrac{7}{3}$$ rupees.Maths
