# Find the probability that it is a square if a child’s game has 8 triangles of which 3 are blue and rest are red, and 10 squares of which 6 are blue and rest are red. One piece is lost at random

**Solution:**

Given, a child’s game has 8 triangles of which 3 are blue and the rest are red.

10 squares of which are blue and rest are red.

One piece is lost at random.

We have to find the probability that it is a square.

Considering 8 triangles,

Number of blue triangles = 3

Number of red triangles = 8 - 3 = 5

Considering 10 squares,

Number of blue squares = 6

Number of red squares = 10 - 6 = 4

Total number of game = 8 + 10 = 18

The probability that the lost piece is a square is given by

Favourable outcome = square

Number of favourable outcomes = 10

Number of possible outcomes = 18

Probability = number of favourable outcomes / number of possible outcomes

Probability = 10/18

= 5/9

Therefore, the probability that the lost piece is a square is 5/9.

A child’s game has 10 triangles of which 7 are blue and rest are red, and 19 squares of which 9 are blue and rest are red. One piece is lost at random. Find the probability that it is a square.
