# In a survey of 364 children aged 19-36 months, it was found that 91 liked to eat potato chips. If a child is selected at random, the probability that he/she does not like to eat potato chips is :

a. 0.25

b. 0.50

c. 0.75

d. 0.80

**Solution:**

It is given that

Total number of survey children’s age from 19-36 months n(S) = 364

It was found that 91 liked to eat potato chips

Number of children who do not like potato chips N (E) = 364 - 91 = 273

We know that

Probability that he/she does not like to eat potato chips = n(E)/ n(S)

Substituting the values

= 273/ 364

= 0.75

Therefore, the probability that he/she does not like to eat potato chips is 0.75.
