Probability

Probability means the chances of happening or occurring of an event

Probability Tricks To Solve IBPS Quant Questions_50.1

Event:-

              Event is the single result of an experiment

Ex. Getting a head is an event related to tossing of a coin

Types of event:-

                           Various types of events are as follow:

1. Certain event : It is a event which is certain to occur

2. Impossible event : It has no chance of occurring

Ex. A professor chooses a student at random from a class of 20 boys. What is the probability that the student chosen is boy?

Favourable cases = 20

total cases = 20

∴ Probability =20/20  = 1

3. Dependent events:- 

                                   Two events are called dependent if outcome or occurrence of the 1st affects the outcome or occurrence of the 2nd, so that probability is changed.

Ex. A card is chosen at random from a deck of 52 playing cards. without replacing it, a 2nd card is chosen. What is probability that 1st card chosen is king and the 2nd chosen is jack?

Independent Events:-

                                    Two events A and B are called independents if occurring or non-occurring of A does not affect the occurring or non-occurring of B.

Ex. A coin is tossed and a 6 sided dice is rolled find probability of getting a tail of coin and getting ‘2’ on dice?

Probability (Tail) =1/2

Probability of getting ‘2’ of dice =1/6

Some rule of Probability

1. Addition rule

P (A or B) = P(A) + P(B)

and P(A ∪ B) = P(A) + P(B)

2. Multiplication rule 

if A and B are independent event

P(A ∩ B) = P(A). P(B)

Ex. From a pack of 52 cards, a card is chosen at random, find the probability that it is either a king or a jack?

⇒ Different types of question asked on probability:-

1. Based on coins :-

                            In these type, questions are based on tossing of coins and obtaining a particular face (Head/Tail) or obtaining same face on two or more coins.

Ex.  A coin is tossed twice, then find probability that a tail is obtained atleast once?

When coin is tossed twice, total possible outcome = 4

Ways in which tail is obtained = 3

∴ Required probability =3/4

2. Based on Dice:-

                          These type of question is based on rolling of one or more dice and getting a particular number on the face or a sum of faces of dice.

Ex. A single dice is a rolled what is the probability of getting a 2 or 6?

3. Based on balls :-

                                 These types of questions are based on choosing a ball  of a particular colour from one or more bag containing different coloured balls.

Ex. In a bag, there are 3 white, 4 red and 5 Green balls. if two ball are chosen, find the probability of both balls being red ?

Here White balls= 3

Red balls = 4

Green balls = 5
