- 15 women
one randomly selected person will get a free gift. What is the probability that the person selected is a child?
In this problem there are 8 children.
There are also 15 + 17 + 8 = 40 people.
Therefore, if one person is chosen at random, there is a 8 / 40 probability that this person is a child.
This fraction can be simplified by dividing each side by 8: 8 /40 = 1 / 5.
Therefore the answer is 1/5 which can also be written as 0.2 as a decimal; both are correct.
