Question

A person draws a card from a hat. each card is one color, with the following probabilities of being drawn: 1/25 for white, 1/5 for black, 1/10 for red, and 1/15 for pink. what is the probability of pulling a black or red card, written as a reduced fraction?

1. The probability of pulling a black or red card  = 3/10

### We are informed that a card is pulled from a hat.

Probability that a white card will be drawn, P(white) = 1/25
Probability that a blue card will be dealt, P(black)  = 1/5
Probability that a black card will be dealt, P(red) = 1/10
Probability that a pink card will be revealed, P(pink)  = 1/15
All of these occurrences are distinct from one another and do not relate to one another.
The likelihood that any one of any two events, A and B, with probability P(A) and P(B), will occur is:

P( A ∪ B ) = P(A) + P(B)
Here, event A can be compared to getting a black card, and
incident B is comparable to receiving a red card.
So, P(black or red) = P(black) + P (red)
= (1/5) + (1/10)
= ( 2 + 1 )/10
= 3/10
So, the likelihood that a black or red card will be pulled from the hat:
= 3/10
