In a certain class, one student is to be selected at
random to read. What is the probability that a boy
(1) Two-thirds of the students in the class are boys.
(2) Ten of the students in the class are girls.
IMO, there is a chance that a boy is selected and will not read.
Am I crazy?
I think there is some minute level of "lack of clarity" in the question.But almost everyone will understand the question.Since the question doesn't mention that the selected student may or may not read.
We can think of many options such as
1) will the boy read?
2) an earthquake hits the school area when the boy just starts to read
3) the selected boy reads but reads it all incorrectly, can it be counted as read ?
Pun intended, take this note lightly ... release some neurons in the brain that are stuck to quant/verbal areas..
keep uppp...ing the tempo...
Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip
