how you got your answer.

b. What is the probability that Teresa will pick a tile with a vowel (A, E, I, O, U) on it?

**PsyDAG**, Friday, May 6, 2011 at 2:22pma. Assuming that these are the only tiles in the bag, there are six possibilities. The letter T is only one of these possibilities = 1/6

This should give you an idea of how to do b and c.
