Q:
# In a box of favourites; there are three chocolates; flakes, dairy milk, and boost.
When a chocolate is chosen at random, the chance of choosing a flake was 45%, and the chance of choosing dairy milk was 30%. List the probability of each outcome to occur , presenting your answers as fractions,

Accepted Solution

A:

flakes = 45%
dairy milk = 30%
boost = 100 - 45 - 30 = 25%
the probability of each outcome to occur,
flakes = 45% = 45/100 = 9/20
dairy milk = 30% = 30/100 = 3/10
boost = 25% = 25/100 = 1/4
thus,
flakes = 9/20
dairy milk = 3/10
boost = 1/4
