    Answer:

    The probability of not picking a pink jelly bean: 11/15    

    Step-by-step explanation:

    As we know that the maximum value of the probability of an event would always be 1.

    • The reason is that ‘1’ is certain that something would happen.

    Given that the probability of picking a pink jelly bean out of a bag is 4/15.

    Thus, the probability of not picking a pink jelly bean can be calculated by subtracting 4/15 from the maximum probability ‘1’.

    i.e.

    Probability of not picking a pink jelly bean = max probability – 4/15

                                                                           = 1 – 4/15

                                                                          = 11/15

    Therefore, the probability of not picking a pink jelly bean: 11/15
