Each letter in the word C H A T T A H O O C H E E is written on a separate piece of paper. Each piece of paper is the same size. The pieces of paper are

put into a bag. One of the pieces of paper is selected from the bag at random.What is the probability the letter on the first piece of paper selected will be an H?


The probability for an event to happen can be computed by
P(x) = Number of Favorable Outcomes/ Number of Possible Outcomes

In this case, the number of favorable outcomes is 2 because the letter H appears 2 times.  meanwhile, the number of possible outcomes is 13 because there is a total of 13 letters.

Thus, P(x) = 2/13

Hope this helps :)
