Each letter of alphabet is written on a separate piece of paper and placed in a box and then one piece is drawn at random.
. What is the probability that the selected piece of paper has a vowel written on it?

  • Math -

    Total number of pieces of paper
    = 26 (=26 letters)
    Total number of vowels
    = 5 (AEIOU)
    So probability of drawing a vowel
    = 5/26

    If y is counted as a vowel, then there are six of them, and the probability will be increased accordingly.

  • Math -

    What is the answer

    X over negative 3 plus 10>7
