My Question is, I don't know how to do Probability.

**Reiny**, Monday, April 27, 2009 at 12:53pmin general,

the probability of "some event"

= no of cases for that event/total number of cases

so in our case, there would be 5 boys with glasses, the "event"

the total number of students = 12

so the prob(boy with glasses) = 5/12
