# Eleven bags of wheat flour, each marked 5 kg, actually contained the following weights of flour (in kg):

4.97, 5.05, 5.08, 5.03, 5.00, 5.06, 5.08, 4.98, 5.04, 5.07, 5.00

Find the probability that any of these bags chosen at random contains more than 5 kg of flour.

**Solution:**

The probability of a certain event is given by the ratio of occurrence of a particular event by the total number of events.

Probability of an event, P(E) = Number of instances that event takes place/Total number of instances

Total number of bags = 11

Number of bags containing more than 5 kg of flour = 7

Probability of a bag containing more than 5 kg of flour = 7/11

**Video Solution:**

## Eleven bags of wheat flour, each marked 5 kg, actually contained the following weights of flour (in kg): 4.97, 5.05, 5.08, 5.03, 5.00, 5.06, 5.08, 4.98, 5.04, 5.07, 5.00. Find the probability that any of these bags chosen at random contains more than 5 kg of flour.
