1.  Suppose you have 3 nickels, 2 dimes, and 6 quarters in your pocket. If you draw a coin randomly from your pocket, what is the probability that

a. You will draw a dime?

b. You will draw a nickel?

c. You will draw a quarter?

Lets suppose nickel = a, dime = b and quarter = c.

The probability of drawing a nickel = P(a) = Total number of nickels in pocket/ Total number of coins in the pocket  = 3/11

The probability of drawing a dime = P(b) = Total number of dimes in pocket/ Total number of coins in the pocket  = 2/11

The probability of drawing a nickel = P(a) = Total number of quarter in pocket/ Total number of coins in the pocket  = 6/11   (Algebra, 2010)
