## What is the probability of picking letter A?

1/5

If we pick one letter at random what is the probability that it is an A? a vowel? a consonant? Since there is only one A, the probability of picking an A is 1/5.

## What is the probability of picking a letter M?

2/m

A letter is chosen at random from the word ‘MATHEMATICS, the probability of getting the letter M is 2/m.

## What is the probability of choosing the letter B?

15% 9%

## What is the probability of getting any vowel?

probability of selecting a vowel from the English alphabet is 5/26 (≈19.2%) if you include only A, E, I, O, and U as vowels.

## What is the probability of choosing a vowel?

The probability of selecting a vowel from the English alphabet is 5/26 (≈19.2%) if you include only A, E, I, O, and U as vowels.

## How would you explain a probability?

The probability of an event is defined to be the ratio of the number of cases favourable to the event—i.e., the number of outcomes in the subset of the sample space defining the event—to the total number of cases.

## What are all the odd numbers from 1 to 100?

The odd numbers from 1 to 100 are: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 69, 71, 73, 75, 77, 79, 81, 83, 85, 87, 89, 91, 93, 95, 97, 99.

## What’s the probability of choosing a letter at random?

Choose a number at random from 1 to 7. Toss a coin. Choose a letter at random from the word SCHOOL. None of the above. Choose a letter at random from the word SCHOOL (SCHOOL has 2 O’s). What is the probability of choosing a vowel from the alphabet? None of the above. A number from 1 to 11 is chosen at random.

## How to calculate the probability of choosing 5 winning numbers?

The number of ways to choose 5 out of the 6 winning numbers is given by 6C5 = 6 and the number of ways to choose 1 out of the 42 losing numbers is given by 42C1 = 42. Thus the number of favorable outcomes is then given by the Basic Counting Rule: 6C5 × 42C1 = 6 × 42 = 252.

## What is the probability of choosing the letter’s from Mississippi?

I contacted mathgoodies.com and suggested that if they follow that logic, then (a famous example, I guess) the probability of choosing S from MISSISSIPPI is 4/4. Which obviously isn’t. Or am I confused?
