Ex15.1, 16 12 defective pens are accidentally mixed with 132 good ones. It is not possible to just look at a pen and tell whether or not it is defective. One pen is taken out at random from this lot. Determine the probability that the pen taken out is a good one. Total number of pens = Total defective pens + Total good pens = 12 + 132 = 144 Number of good pens = 132 P (getting a good pen) = ( )/( ) = 132/144 = 11/12
