If a single letter is drawn from the set (m,a,t,h,e,i,c,s) what is the probability that the letter drawn is a member of the set (m,a,t,h)?
PLEASE HELP!!

There are 8 letters, of which 4 are in the set you are interested in. That means the probability of drawing a letter from the {m,a,t,h} set is 4/8 = 1/2.
Answer: 1/2
