Exercise 19 page: 708
1. A coin is tossed 500 times and we get
Heads: 285 times and tails: 215 times.
When a coin is tossed at random, what is the probability of getting
(i) a head?
(ii) a tail?
Solution:
It is given that
Number of trials = 500
Number of heads = 285
Number of tails = 215
(i) Consider E as the event of getting a head
So we get
P (E) = number of heads coming up/ total number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E) = 285/500
We get
P (E) = 0.57
(ii) Consider F as the event of getting a tail
So we get
P (F) = number of tails coming up/ total number of trials
By substituting the values
P (F) = 215/500
We get
P (F) = 0.43
2. Two coins are tossed 400 times and we get
Two heads: 112 times; one head: 160 times; 0 head: 128 times.
When two coins are tossed at random, what is the probability of getting
(i) 2 heads?
(ii) 1 head?
(iii) 0 head?
Solution:
It is given that
Number of trials = 400
Number of times 2 head = 112
Number of times 1 head = 160
Number of times 0 head = 128
Take E_{1}, E_{2 }and E_{3} as the events
(i) So we get
P (E_{1}) = number of times 2 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{1}) = 112/ 400
We get
P (E_{1}) = 0.28
(ii) So we get
P (E_{2}) = number of times 1 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{2}) = 160/ 400
We get
P (E_{2}) = 0.4
(iii) So we get
P (E_{3}) = number of times 0 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{3}) = 128/ 400
We get
P (E_{3}) = 0.32
3. Three coins are tossed 200 times and we get
Three heads: 39 times; two heads: 58 times;
One head: 67 times; o head: 36 times.
When three coins are tossed at random, what is the probability of getting
(i) 3 heads?
(ii) 1 head?
(iii) 0 head?
(iv) 2 heads?
Solution:
It is given that
Number of trials = 200
Number of times 3 heads = 39
Number of times 2 heads = 58
Number of times 1 head = 67
Number of times 0 head = 36
Consider E_{1}, E_{2}, E_{3 }and E_{4} as the events
(i) So we get
P (E_{1}) = number of times 3 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{1}) = 39/ 200
We get
P (E_{1}) = 0.195
(ii) So we get
P (E_{2}) = number of times 1 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{2}) = 67/ 200
We get
P (E_{2}) = 0.335
(iii) So we get
P (E_{3}) = number of times 0 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{3}) = 36/ 200
We get
P (E_{3}) = 0.18
(iv) So we get
P (E_{4}) = number of times 2 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{4}) = 58/ 200
We get
P (E_{4}) = 0.29

P (E_{1}) = number of times 3 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{1}) = 54/ 300
We get
P (E_{1}) = 0.18
(ii) So we get
P (E_{2}) = number of times 6 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{2}) = 33/ 300
We get
P (E_{2}) = 0.11
(iii) So we get
P (E_{3}) = number of times 5 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{3}) = 39/ 300
We get
P (E_{3}) = 0.13
(iv) So we get
P (E_{4}) = number of times 2 head/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{4}) = 60/ 300
We get
P (E_{4}) = 0.2
5. In a survey of 200 ladies, it was found that 142 like coffee, while 58 dislike it. Find the probability that a lady chosen at random
(i) likes coffee,
(ii) dislikes coffee.
Solution:
It is given that
Number of ladies = 200
Number of ladies who like coffee = 142
Number of ladies who dislike coffee = 58
Consider E_{1} as the event that the selected ladies like coffee
So we get
P (E_{1}) = number of ladies who like coffee/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{1}) = 142/ 200
We get
P (E_{1}) = 0.71
Consider E_{1} as the event that the selected ladies dislike coffee
So we get
P (E_{2}) = number of ladies who dislike coffee/ number of trials
By substituting the values
P (E_{2}) = 58/ 200
We get
P (E_{2}) = 0.29

A unit test is selected at random. What is the probability that the student gets more than 60% marks in the test?
Solution:
We know that
Number of tests which he gets more than 60% is 2
The total number of tests is 6
So we get
Required probability = Number of tests which he gets more than 60%/ total number of tests
By substituting the values
Required probability = 2/6
On further calculation
Required probability = 1/3

Out of these packets, one packet is chosen at random.
What is the probability that the chosen packet contains more than 2kg of salt?
Solution:
It is given that
Total number of salt packets = 12
Number of packets having more than 2kg of salt = 5
We know that
Probability that the chosen packet contains more than 2kg of salt = number of packets having more than 2kg of salt/ total number of salt packets
By substituting the values
Probability that the chosen packet contains more than 2kg of salt = 5/12
11. In a cricket match, a batsman hits a boundary 6 times out of 3 balls he plays. Find the probability that he did not hit a boundary.
Solution:
It is given that
Number of times boundary was hit = 6
Total number of balls played = 30
So we get
Number of times boundary was not hit = 30 â€“ 6 = 24
We know that
Probability that the batsman did not hit a boundary = number of times boundary was not hit/ total number of balls played
By substituting the values
Probability that the batsman did not hit a boundary = 24/30
By division
Probability that the batsman did not hit a boundary = 4/5 = 0.8

Suppose a family is chosen at random. Find the probability that the family chosen is
(i) earning â‚¹ 25000 – â‚¹ 30000 per month and owing exactly 2 vehicles.
(ii) earning â‚¹ 40000 or more per month and owing exactly 1 vehicle.
(iii) earning less than â‚¹ 25000 per month and not owing any vehicle.
(iv) earning â‚¹ 35000 – â‚¹ 40000 per month and owing 2 or more vehicles.
(v) owing not more than 1 vehicle.
Solution:
(i) We know that
Probability that the family chosen is earning â‚¹ 25000 – â‚¹ 30000 per month and owing exactly
2 vehicles = 27/2400 = 9/800
(ii) We know that
Probability that the family chosen is earning â‚¹ 40000 or more per month and owing exactly
1 vehicle = 579/ 2400 = 193/ 800
(iii) We know that
Probability that the family chosen is earning less than â‚¹ 25000 per month and not owing
any vehicle = 10/ 2400 = 1/240
(iv) We know that
Probability that the family chosen is earning â‚¹ 35000 – â‚¹ 40000 per month and owing 2 or
more vehicles = Probability of families owing 2 vehicles + probability of families owing 3 or more vehicles
By substituting the values
Probability that the family chosen is earning â‚¹ 35000 – â‚¹ 40000 per month and owing 2 or
more vehicles = (59 + 25)/ 2400
On further calculation
Probability that the family chosen is earning â‚¹ 35000 – â‚¹ 40000 per month and owing 2 or
more vehicles = 84/2400 = 7/200
(v) We know that
Probability that the family chosen is owing not more than 1 vehicle = Probability of families owing 0 vehicle + probability of families owing 1 vehicle
By substituting the values
Probability that the family chosen is owing not more than 1 vehicle = [10 + 0 + 1 + 2 + 1) + (160 + 305 + 535 + 469 + 579)]/2
On further calculation
Probability that the family chosen is owing not more than 1 vehicle = (14 + 2048)/2400
So we get
Probability that the family chosen is owing not more than 1 vehicle = 2062/2400 = 1031/1200

Out of these students, one is chosen at random. What is the probability that the marks of the chosen student
(i) are 30 or less?
(ii) are 31 or more?
(iii) lie in the interval 21 â€“ 30?
Solution:
It is given that
Total number of students = 30
(i) We know that
Probability that the marks of the chosen students are 30 or less = (7 + 10 + 6)/ 30
So we get
Probability that the marks of the chosen students are 30 or less = 23/30
(ii) We know that
Probability that the marks of the chosen students are 31 or more = (4 + 3)/30
So we get
Probability that the marks of the chosen students are 31 or more = 7/30
(iii) We know that
Probability that the marks of the chosen students lie in the interval 21 â€“ 30 = 6/30
So we get
Probability that the marks of the chosen students lie in the interval 21 â€“ 30 = 1/5

A teacher from this school is chosen at random. What is the probability that the selected teacher is
(i) 40 or more than 40 years old?
(ii) of any age lying between 3039 years (including both)?
(iii) 18 years or more and 49 years or less?
(iv) 18 years or more old?
(v) above 60 years of age?
Solution:
It is given that
Total number of teachers = 75
(i) We know that
Probability that the selected teacher is 40 or more than 40 years old = (37 + 8)/ 75
So we get
Probability that the selected teacher is 40 or more than 40 years old = 45/75 = 3/5
(ii) We know that
Probability that the selected teacher is of any age lying between 3039 years (including both) = 27/75
So we get
Probability that the selected teacher is of any age lying between 3039 years (including both) = 9/25
(iii) We know that
Probability that the selected teacher is 18 years or more and 49 years or less = (3 + 27 + 37)/ 75
So we get
Probability that the selected teacher is 18 years or more and 49 years or less = 67/75
(iv) We know that
Probability that the selected teacher is 18 years or more old = (3 + 27 + 37 + 8)/75
So we get
Probability that the selected teacher is 18 years or more old = 75/75 = 1
(v) We know that
Probability that the selected teacher is above 60 years of age = 0/75 = 0
15. Following are the ages (in years) of 360 patients, getting medical treatment in a hospital:

(ii) 50 years or more but less than 70 years?
(iii) 10 years or more but less than 40 years?
(iv) 10 years or more?
(v) less than 10 years?
Solution:
It is given that
Total number of patients = 360
(i) We know that
Probability that his age is 30 years or more but less than 40 years = 60/360 = 1/6
(ii) We know that
Probability that his age is 50 years or more but less than 70 years = (50 + 30)/360
So we get
Probability that his age is 50 years or more but less than 70 years = 80/360 = 2/9
(iii) We know that
Probability that his age is 10 years or more but less than 40 years = (90 + 50 + 60)/360
So we get
Probability that his age is 10 years or more but less than 40 years = 200/ 360 = 5/9
(iv) We know that
Probability that his age is 10 years or more = 1
(v) We know that

Solution:
It is given that
Total number of patients = 90
(i) We know that
Probability that the chosen student gets 20% or less marks = 7/90
(ii) We know that
Probability that the chosen student gets 60% or more marks = (10 +9)/90
So we get
Probability that the chosen student gets 60% or more marks = 19/90
17. It is known that a box of 800 electric bulbs contains 36 defective bulbs. One bulb is taken at random out of the box. What is the probability that the bulb chosen is nondefective?
Solution:
It is given that
Total number of electric bulbs = 800
Defective bulbs = 36
So the number of nondefective bulbs = 800 â€“ 36 = 764
We know that
Probability that the bulb chosen is non defective = number of nondefective bulbs/ total number of bulbs
By substituting the values
Probability that the bulb chosen is non defective = 764/800
So we get
Probability that the bulb chosen is non defective = 191/200
