# One ticket is drawn at random from a bag containing tickets numbered 1 to 40. The probability that the selected ticket has a number which is a multiple of 5 is

a. 1/5

b. 3/5

c. 4/5

d. 1/3

**Solution:**

We know that

Multiple of 5 between 1 to 40 is

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40

Total number of outcomes = 40

Number of favourable outcomes which are multiples of 5 = 8

From the definition

Probability = Favourable outcomes/ Total outcomes

Substituting the values

= 8/40

= 1/5

Therefore, the probability that the selected ticket has a number which is a multiple of 5 is 1/5.
