The letters of the word mathematics are written on separate pieces of paper and put in a hat. What is the probability of drawing a vowel from the hat? (vowels are a, e, i, o u.)

Number of letters that are vowels: 4

Numbers of letters: 12

Probability = “number of letters that are vowels: /” total number of letters”

Probability= 4/12 = 1/3
