# The probability that bulbs selected randomly from the lot has life less than 900 hours is :

Life time (in hours) 300 500 700 900 1100

Frequency 10 12 23 25 10

a. 11/40

b. 5/16

c. 7/16

d. 9/16

**Solution:**

It is given that

Total number of bulbs in a lot n(S) = 80

Number of bulbs whose life time is less than 900 hours n(E) = 10 + 12 + 23 = 45

We know that

Probability that bulbs selected randomly from the lot has life less than 900 hours = n(E)/n(S)

Substituting the values

= 45/80

= 9/16

Therefore, the probability that bulbs selected randomly from the lot have life less than 900 hours is 9/16.
