Question 1 A box contains 90 discs, numbered from 1 to 90. If one disc is drawn at random from the box, the probability that it bears a prime-number less than 23, is: (a) 7/90 (b) 10/90 (c) 4/45 (d) 9/89 Total number of disks = 90
Prime number less than 23 areβ¦
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19
Number of prime numbers less than 23 = 8
Thus,
P(getting a prime number less than 23)
= (ππ’ππππ ππ πππππ ππ’πππππ πππ π π‘βππ 23)/(πππ‘ππ ππ’πππππ )
= 8/90
= π/ππ
So, the correct answer is (C)
