5. There was a drawing for a prize at the Columbus Day celebration downtown. The prize was a scale model of the Santa Maria carved from a single piece of wood by a local artist. It was a beautiful ship and Jose really wanted it. Each $2.25 ticket bought one chance in the drawing. Jose purchased 10 tickets. If there were 510 tickets purchased in all, what is the probability that one of Jose's tickets will be drawn first? Express as a fraction in lowest terms.
I just answered this a few minutes ago.
