Best answer

Total no. of possible outcomes = 48 {13, 14, 15, …., 60}

(i) E ⟶ event of getting no divisible by 5

No. of favourable outcomes = 10{15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 55, 60}

Probability, P(E) = (No.of favorable outcomes)/(Total no.of possible outcomes)

P(E) = 10/48 = 5/24

(ii) E ⟶ event of getting a perfect square.

No. of favourable outcomes = 4 {16, 25, 36, 49}

P(E) = 4/48 = 1/12
