If a coin is drawn from a box containing 4 gold, 10 silver, and 16 copper coins, all the same size, what is the probability of

(a) getting a gold coin?

(b) getting a copper coin?

(c) not getting a copper coin?

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The probability of getting a gold coin if the box contains 4 gold, 10 silver, and 16 copper coins.

**Given Information:**

A box contains 4 gold, 10 silver, and 16 copper coins.

**Formula used:**

The probability of an event occurring *k* times out of *n* equally likely ways, then,

**Calculation:**

Consider the event of getting a gold coin to be *G*.

The box contains 4 gold coins, thus, the number of gold coins is equal to 4.

There are 4 gold, 10 silver, and 16 copper coins

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The probability of getting a copper coin if the box contains 4 gold, 10 silver, and 16 copper coins.

**(c)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The probability of not getting a copper coin if the box contains 4 gold, 10 silver, and 16 copper coins.
