1. Total no. of coins = 100+50+20+10 = 180

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

(i) Total number of 50 p coin = 100

P (50 p coin) = 100/180 = 5/9 = 0.55

(ii) Total number of ₹5 coin = 10

P (₹5 coin) = 10/180 = 1/18 = 0.055

∴ P (not ₹5 coin) = 1-P (₹5 coin) = 1-0.055 = 0.945
