# The games and entertainment committee planned to give prizes to some lucky persons at the party. Each person would write his or her name on the ticket and put it in the box. Later, the name of the winner would be drawn from the box. If Rose is one of 80 people who placed their names in the box, what is the probability that Rose’s name will be drawn?

Rose is a name of a single person simply 1, versus the total, so:
1 divided by 80=0.0125
Convert to %
0.0125 x 100=1.25%

Hope this helps =)
