Let total number of candies = 100 Number of candies which are orange flavoured = 0 P(candy taken out is orange flavoured) = (๐‘๐‘ข๐‘š๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘๐‘–๐‘’๐‘  ๐‘คโ„Ž๐‘–๐‘โ„Ž ๐‘Ž๐‘Ÿ๐‘’ ๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘”๐‘’ ๐‘“๐‘™๐‘Ž๐‘ฃ๐‘œ๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘’๐‘‘)/(๐‘‡๐‘œ๐‘ก๐‘Ž๐‘™ ๐‘›๐‘ข๐‘š๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘๐‘–๐‘’๐‘ ) = 0/100 = 0 Ex15.1, 6 (Method2) A bag contains lemon flavoured candies only. Malini takes out one candy without looking into the bag. What is the probability that she takes out (i) an orange flavoured candy? The bag contains lemon flavoured candies only. It does not contain any orange flavoured candies. So every time, she will take out only lemon flavoured candies.
