Question 12:

A number is selected from the number and then a second number is randomly selected from the numbers . What is the probability that the product of the two numbers will be less than ?

Answer:

Number can be selected in three wavs and corresponding to each such wav there are three wavs of selecting number y. Therefore. Two numbers can be selected in wavs as listed below:

Favourable number of elementary events

Hence, required probability

Question 16:

In the adjoining figure ABCD is a square with sides of length units points are the mid points of the sides BC & CD respectively. If a point is selected at random from the interior of the square what is the probability that the point will be chosen from the interior of the square what is the probability that the point will be chosen from the interior of the triangles APO.

Triangle in a Square Inscribed

Answer:

Area of triangle

Area of triangle

Area of triangle ADQ

Area of triangle APO=Area of a square – (Area of a triangle PQC+Area of triangle ABP = Area of triangle ABP)

Probability that the point will be chosen from the interior of the triangle APO
