1. The total numbers of outcomes i.e. pens = 144

Given, numbers of defective pens = 20

âˆ´ The numbers of non defective pens = 144-20 = 124

P(E) = (Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes)

(i) Total numbers events in which she will buy them = 124

So, P (buying) = 124/144 = 31/36 = 0.86

(ii) Total numbers events in which she will not buy them = 20

So, P (not buying) = 20/144 = 5/36 = 0.138
