# A bag contains 10 red, 5 blue and 7 green balls. A ball is drawn at random. Find the probability of this ball being a red ball

**Solution:**

Given, a bag contains 10 red, 5 blue and 7 green balls.

A ball is drawn at random.

We have to find the probability of getting a red ball.

Possible outcomes = 10 red ball + 5 blue ball + 7 green ball

Total number of possible outcomes = 10 + 5 + 7 = 22

The probability of getting a red ball is given by

There are 10 red balls in a bag

Number of favourable outcome = 10

Number of possible outcomes = 22

Probability = number of favourable outcomes / number of possible outcomes

Probability = 10/22

= 5/11

Therefore, the probability of getting a red ball is 5/11.
