Ex 16.3, 10 A letter is chosen at random from the word ‘ASSASSINATION’. Find the probability that letter is (i) a vowel Letter in the word ASSASSINATION Number of total letters in the given word = 13 n(S) = 13 Let A be the event getting vowels So, A = {A, A, A, I, I, O} n(A) = 6 Probability of getting vowels = P(A) = 𝑁𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑣𝑜𝑤𝑒𝑙𝑠 𝑖𝑛 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑑﷮𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑙𝑒𝑡𝑡𝑒𝑟𝑠 𝑖𝑛 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑑﷯ = n(A)﷮n(S)﷯ = 𝟔﷮𝟏𝟑﷯ Ex16.3, 10 (Method 1) A letter is chosen at random from the word ‘ASSASSINATION’.
