Question

# In a school, there are $$1000$$ student, out of which $$430$$ are girls. It is known that out of $$430, 10$$% of the girls study in class $$XII$$. What is the probability that a student chosen randomly studies in class $$XII$$ given that the chosen student is a girl?.

Solution

## Total number of students $$= 1000$$Total number of girls $$= 430$$Girls studying in class $$XII = 10 \% \text{ of } 430$$                                            $$\\ = \cfrac{10}{100} \times 430$$                                            $$\\ = 43$$We need to find the probability that a student chosen randomly studies in class $$XII$$, given that the chosen student is a girl.$$A$$ : Student is in class $$XII$$$$B$$ : Studenet is a girlTherefore,$$P{\left( A | B \right)}$$ $$= \cfrac{P{\left( A \cap B \right)}}{P{\left( B \right)}} \\ = \cfrac{\text{No. of girls studying in class XII}}{\text{Number of girls}} \\ = \cfrac{43}{430} = 0.1$$Mathematics
