1 CHAPTER 15 PROBABILITY Points to Remember : 1. In the experimental approach to probability, we find the probability of the occurence of an event by actually performing the experiment a number of times and adequate recording of the happening of event.. In a theoretical approach to probability, we try to predict what will happen without actually performing the experiment. 3. An outcome of a random experiment is called an elementary event. 4. The theoretical (classical) probability of an event E, written as P(E), is defined as Number of outcomes favourable to E P(E)= Number of all possible outcomes of the experiment 5. The probability of an impossible event is 0, and that of sure event is The probability of an event E is a real number P(E) such that 0 P(E) An event having only one outcome is called an elementary event. The sum of the probabilities of all the elementary events of an experiment is For any event E, P(E) + P( E ) = 1, where E stands for not E. 9. Total possible outcomes, when a coin is tossed n times, is n. 10. Total possible outcomes, when a die is thrown n times, is 6 n. 11. Playing Cards (Total 5) Spade ( ) Club ( ) Heart ( ) Diamond ( ) (Black coloured) (Black coloured) (Red coloured) (Red coloured) The cards in each suit are ace, king, queen, jack and number cards to 10. Kings, queens and jacks are called face cards. ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLES Example 1. An unbiased die is thrown. What is the probability of getting : (i) an odd number a multiple of 3 (iii) a perfect square number (iv) a number less than 4. Solution. Here, total number of all possible outcomes= 6 (i) favourable outcomes are 1, 3, 5. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 3 P (an odd number) No. of favourable outcomes 3 = 1 Total no. of possible outcome 6 56 PROBABILITY MATHEMATICS X

2 favourable outcomes are 3 and 6. So, no. of favourable outcomes = P (a multiple of 3) (iii) favourable outcomes are 1 and 4. So, no. of favourable outcomes = P (a perfect square number) (iv) favourable outcomes are 1, and 3. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 3 3 P (a number less than 4) 1 6 Example. Three unbiased coins are tossed together. Find the probability of getting : Solution. Example 3. Solution. (i) all heads two heads (iii) one head (iv) at least two heads Here, possible outcomes are HHH, HHT, HTH, HTT, THH, THT, TTH and TTT. So, total no. of possible outcomes = 8 (i) favourable outcome = HHH So, No. of favourable outcome = 1 no. of favourable outcomes P (all heads) 1 Total no. possible outcomes 8 favourable outcomes are HHT, THH and HTH. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 3 P (two heads) 3 8 (iii) favourable outcomes are HTT, THT and TTH. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 3 P (one head) 3 8 (iv) favourable outcomes are HHH, HHT, HTH and THH. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 4 4 P (at least two heads) 1 8. Find the probability that a leap year selected at random will contain 53 sundays. In a leap year, there are 366 days. We have, 366 days = 5 weeks + days. Thus, a leap year has always 5 sundays. MATHEMATICS X PROBABILITY 57

3 The remaining days can be : (i) Sunday and Monday Monday and Tuesday (iii) Tuesday and Wednesday (iv) (v) (vi) Wednesday and Thursday Thursday and Friday Friday and Saturday (vii) Saturday and Sunday Clearly, there are seven elementary events associated with this random experiment. Let E be the event that a leap year has 53 sundays. Clearly, the event E will happer if the last two days of the leap year are either Sunday and Monday or Saturday and Sunday. Favourable no. of elementary events = Hence, required probability Ans. 7 Example 4. One card is drawn from a pack of 5 cards, each of the 5 cards being equally likely to be drawn. Find the probability that the card drawn is : (i) an ace either red or king (iii) a face card Solution. here, total no. of possible outcomes = 5. (i) (iv) a red face card There are 4 ace cards in a pack of 5 cards. One ace can be chosen in 4 ways. So, favourable no. of outcomes = 4 no. of favourable outcomes P (an ace) = Total no. of possible outcomes 4 = 1 5 There are 6 red cards, including red kings. Also, there are 4 kings, two red and two black. card drawn will be a red card or a king if it is any one of 8 cards (6 red cards and black kings) So, favourable no. of outcomes = 8 P(either red or king) (iii) Kings, queens and jacks are the face cards. So, favourable no. of outcomes = 3 4 = 1 (iv) 1 P(a face card) 3 5 There are 6 red face cards, 3 each from diamonds and hearts. So, favourable no. of outcomes = 6 P(a red face card) PROBABILITY MATHEMATICS X

4 Example 5. Solution. Example 6. Cards marked with the numbers to 101 are placed in a box and mixed thoroughly. One card is drawn from this box. Find the probability that the number of the card is : (i) an even number a number less than 14 (iii) a number which is a perfect square (iv) a prime number less than 0. From to 101, these are (101 ) + 1 = 100 numbers. So, total no. of possible outcomes = 100. (i) From to 101, the even numbers are, 4, 6,..., 100 which are 50 in number. So, number of favourable outcomes = 50 no. of favourable outcomes P(an even number) = Total no. of possible outcomes 50 = From to 101, the numbers less than 14 are, 3,..., which are 1 in number. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 1 1 P(a number less than 14) (iii) From to 101, the perfect squares are 4, 9, 16, , which are 9 in number. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 9 P (a number which is a perfect square) (iv) From to 101, the prime numbers less than 0 are, 3, 5, 7, 11,, 17 and 19 which are 8 in number. So, no. of favourable outcomes = 8 P (a prime no. less than 0) A bag contains 3 red balls and 5 black balls.a ball is drawn at random from a bag. What is the probability that the ball drawn is : (i) red not red [NCERT] Solution. Total number of balls = = 8 Example 7.

If a marble is drawn at random from the jar, the probability that it is green is. Find the number of blue marbles in the jar. 3 [NCERT] MATHEMATICS X PROBABILITY 59

5 Solution. Total number of elementary events = 4. Let there be x green marbles. P (green marbles is drawn) = 4 x but, P(green marbles is drawn) 3 x x 4 x Number of green marbles = 16 (given) Number of blue marbles = 4 16 = 8 Ans. Example 8.

Total area of rectangular region = 3 m m = 6 m 1 Area of the circle r m m 4 P (die to land inside the circle) / 4 = π 6 4 Ans. Example 9. A bag contains 1 balls out of which x are white. (i) If one ball is drawn at random, what is the probability that it will be a white ball? 60 PROBABILITY MATHEMATICS X m If 6 more white balls are put in the bag, the probability of drawing a white ball will be double than that in (i). Find x. [NCERT] Solution. (i) Total number elementary events = 1. There are x white balls out of which one can be chosen in x ways. So, favourable number of elementary events = x no. of favourable outcomes p 1 = P (white ball) = Total no. of possible outcomes = 1 x If 6 more white balls are put in the bag, then total number of balls in the bag =1 + 6 = 18 and, no. of white balls in the bag = x + 6 x 6 p P (getting a white ball) 18 It is given that, p p1 x 6 x 18 1

6 x 6 x 6( x 6) 18x x + 36 = 18x 1 x = 36 x = 3 Ans. Example 10. Two dice are thrown simultaneously. Find the probability of getting : (i) a doublet i.e. same number on both dice. the sum as a prime number. Solution. Possible outcomes associated to the random experiment of throwing two dice are : (1, 1), (1, ),..., (1, 6) (, 1), (, ),..., (, 6) (6,1), (6, ),..., (6, 6) Total number of possible outcomes = 6 6 = 36 (i) The favourable outcomes are (1, 1), (, ), (3, 3), (4, 4), (5, 5) and (6, 6). Total no. of favourable outcomes = 6 So, P(a doublet) = no. of favourable outcomes Total no. of possible outcomes 6 = Here, favourable sum (as a prime number) are, 3, 5, 7 and 11. So, favourable outcomes are (1, 1), (1, ), (, 1), (1, 4), (4, 1), (, 3), (3, ), (1, 6), (6, 1), (, 5), (5, ), (3, 4), (4,3), (6, 5) and (5, 6). no. of favourable outcomes = 15 P (the sum as a prime number) 15 5 Ans PRACTICE EXERCISE 1.
