Solution

## Out of 8 numbers, an arrow can point any of the numbers in 8 ways. ∴ Total number of outcomes = 8 Since, each of the given numbers is less than 9. Hence, the favourable number of outcomes = 8 Hence, P (arrow points at a number < 9) =Favourable number of outcomesTotal number of outcomes=88=1
