Question and answer
Use decimals to express a probability in tenths. A shelf has 20 bags of potatoes. Two of the bags have potatoes starting to go bad. What is the expected probability of the complement of the event "bad bags of potatoes"? 0.1 0.2 0.8 0.9
The probability of the complement of the event "bad bags of potatoes" is the probability that a bag of potatoes is not bad. Since there are 20 bags in total and only 2 are bad, there are 20-2=18 bags that are not bad. The probability of selecting a bag that is not bad is the number of bags that are not bad divided by the total number of bags: P(Not bad)= Number of bags /Total number of bags P(Not bad)=18/20 Simplifying the fraction: P(Not bad)=0.9 So, the expected probability of the complement of the event "bad bags of potatoes" is 0.9 The correct answer is 0.9

The probability of the complement of the event "bad bags of potatoes" is the probability that a bag of potatoes is not bad. Since there are 20 bags in total and only 2 are bad, there are 20-2=18 bags that are not bad.

The probability of selecting a bag that is not bad is the number of bags that are not bad divided by the total number of bags:

P(Not bad)= Number of bags /Total number of bags
P(Not bad)=18/20
Simplifying the fraction:
P(Not bad)=0.9

So, the expected probability of the complement of the event "bad bags of potatoes" is 0.9
The correct answer is 0.9
