In a cricket match, a batsman hits a boundary 6 times out of the 30 balls he plays. Find the probability of him not hitting a boundary on the balls he plays.
Number of balls in which he does not hit a boundary = 30 – 6 = 24
Total number of balls played = 30
The probability of not hitting a boundary =Number of balls in which he does not hit a boundaryTotal number of balls played
Probability of not hitting a boundary =2430=0.8.
