a. 40

b. 240

c. 480

d. 750

**Solution:**

Probability can be defined as the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes of an event.

Consider x as the number of tickets bought by the girl

From the question we can write it as

x/6000 = 0.08

x = 0.8 × 6000

x = 480

Therefore, she bought 480 tickets.
