. 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.
