# Refer to Example 5, Section 14.4, Chapter 14. Find the probability that a student of the class was born in August.

**Solution:**

Probability of an event, P(E) = Number of occurrences where the event takes place / Total number of occurrences

The probability that a student was born in a certain month is given by the ratio of students born in a certain month and the total number of students born

The total number of students in class = 40

Number of students born in August = 6

Probability of students born in August = Number of students born in August / Total number of students in class

= 6 / 40

= 3 / 20
