Sachin buys fish from a shop for his aquarium. The shopkeeper takes out one fish at random from a tank containing 5 male fish and 8 female fish. What is the probability that the fish taken out is a male fish?

Solution:
Since, the shopkeeper has 5 male fish and 8 female fish.


Sample Space  = {}
n(S) = 13

Let A = Event of getting a male fish

Since, he has 5 male fishes

∴ n(A) = 5

P(A)
=
n(A)
=
5




n(S)

13
