GIVEN: A bag contains5 red, 8 green and 7 white balls
TO FIND: Probability of getting a white ball or a green ball.
Total number of balls
Total number of green or white balls
We know that PROBABILITY =
Hence probability of getting a green or a white ball =
Hence probability of getting an green or white ball =
