In a rack of 15 billiard balls and one ball is selected at random what are the odds in favor it being a ball other than the 8 ball.

I thought it would be 1/15 but I am not sure.

Anyone help me on this?

  1. it is 14/15. THere are 15 total balls. 14 are normal, 1 is the eight ball. There is a 14/15 chance u get a norm one, and 1/15 you get the eight ball
