I hope i am on the right track. Please look at my answer so I am doing correctly.
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
