Solution:
[Starts], [Doesn’t start]

Question 2.

Solution:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Question 3.
When you spin the wheel shown, what are the possible outcomes ? (Outcomes here means the possible sector where the pointer stops) [Page No.295] Solution:
A, B and C.

Question 4.
You have ajar with five identical balls of different colours. [White, Red, Blue, Grey and Yellow] and you have to pick up (draw) a ball without looking at it. List the possible outcomes you get. [Page No. 295] Solution:
White ball, Red ball, Blue ball. Grey ball and Yellow ball. Think, Discuss and Write In rolling a die [Page No. 295]

Question
Does the first player have a greater chance of getting a six on the top face ?
Solution:
No. The chance of getting 6 on the top face is independent of the turn of the player.

Question
Would the player who played after him have a lesser chance of getting a six on the top face?
Solution:
No. Question
Suppose the second player got a six on the top face. Does it mean that the third player would not have a chance of getting a six on the top face ?
Solution:
No. The third player may or may not get six on the top face. It is indepen¬dent of 2nd player’s outcome.

Question
Toss a coin for number of times as shown in the table. And record your findings in the table [Page No. 296]
Solution: Question
What hapens if you increase the num- her of tosses more and more.
Solution:
If you increase the number of tosses more and more they are equally likely chances to get a head or a tail.
Note : This could also be done by the students with a die, roll it for large number of times and observe! Do This

If three coins are tossed simulta¬neously : [Page No. 299]

a) Write all possible outcomes.
Solution:
HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH, TTT, total 8 outcomes.

b) Number of possible outcomes.
Solution:
8

c) Find the probability of getting at least one head, (getting one or more than one head)
Solution:
P = $$\frac{\text { favourable outcomes }}{\text { total outcomes }}=\frac{7}{8}$$

d) Find the probability of getting at most two heads, (getting two or less than two heads)
Solution:
P = $$\frac{\text { favourable outcomes }}{\text { total outcomes }}=\frac{7}{8}$$ e) Find the probability of getting no tails.
Solution:
P = $$\frac{\text { favourable outcomes }}{\text { total outcomes }}=\frac{1}{8}$$

From the figure given below [Page No. 306] Question 1.
Find the probability of the dart hit¬ting the board in the circular region B. (i.e., ring B)
Solution:
Area of innermost ‘C’ circle = πr2
= π x 12 = π sq. units.
Area of the middle ‘B’ circle
= π (22 – 12) = π (4 – 1) = 3π sq.units.
Area of the outermost ’A’ circle
= π (32 – 22) = π (9 – 4) = 5π sq.units.
Probability of hitting the circle B  Question 2.
Without calculating, write the percent¬age of probability of the dart hitting the board in circular region ‘C’ (Le., ring C).
Solution:
$$\frac{1}{9}$$ x 100% = 11$$\frac{1}{9}$$
