    Probability Distribution - ANSWER CHECK

    47. A letter is chosen at random from the word grandiose. E1 is the event in which the vowel is chosen, E2 is the event in which a consonant is chosen, and E3 is the event in which the letter g is chosen.

    What are the probabilities of E1, E2, and E3?

    My Answer:

    E1 = {a,i,o,e}
    E2= {g,r,n,d,s}
    E3 = {g}

    Nine letters total from the word grandiose

    Therefore, the probability of E1 is 4/9.
    The probability of E2 is 5/9 and the probability of E3 is 1/9
