i.e. , 95% of ( 150 + x).
. . 135 + x   = 95% of ( 150 + x)
i.e. x  = 150

#### Ques 4.

In a box carrying one dozen of oranges, one-third have become bad. If 3 oranges are taken out from the box at random, what is the probability that at least one orange out of three oranges picked up is good ?
(a) 1/55
(b) 54/55
(c) 45/55
(d) 3/55
Ans 4.  Total number of oranges = 12
The number of bad oranges = 12 x 1/3 = 40
. . number of good oranges = 12 -4 = 8.
Now, the total number of ways of selecting 3 oranges from the box = 12c3.
The Total number of ways  of selecting  3 bad  oranges  out of 4 bad oranges = 4C3
Hence, the probability  of selecting  all the three bad oranges ( no good oranges )
= 4C3/12C3 = 1/55
Therefore, the probability of selecting at least  one good orange = 1 - 1/55 = 54/55\

= 20x : 24x : 40x = 5 : 6 : 10.
