Each capital letter of the alphabet is carefully printed on a piece of paper in block-form and placed in a bowl
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
An individual piece of paper is selected from the bowl. What is the probability that
A. the letter is a consonant?
B. the letter is formed from straight-line segments only?
C. the letter has an enclosed region in its representation?

• Math -

Is Y a vowel?

After you decide that, then Pr=(chances it can be)/total possibiliites

• Math -

There are 5 vowels in the alphabet, 6 if you count the "y". Oxford dictionary says it could be either.

so a) prob (consonant) = 21/26 or 20/26

do the others the same way, count the number of letters that obey the condition stated, and divide it by 26

• Math -

It doesn't state if Y is part of the vowel.

• Math -

Then I would assume that it is not.

• Math -

I am stuck and do not know how to do this question. Consider the experiments involving rolling a single die once. Give the probabilities of the event described.
what is P(even or prime)?

• Math -

the probability for any side coming up is 1/6

How many ways can you get a Prime number?
1,2,3,5
How many results can you throw:
1,2,3,4,5,6
Pr(prime)=4ways/6possibilies=2/3
