Your box of cereal may be a contest winner! It's rattling, which 100% of winning boxes do. Of course 1% of all boxes rattle and only one box in a million is a winner. What is the probability that your box is a winner? Please specify your answer as a probability (i.e. .05 rather than 5%).

    i already answered this question for @adityastudy ;out of 100 only one box rattle (1%), so out of 10,00,000 only 10,000 boxes will rattle and out of these 10,000 only 1 box wins, So probablity is 1/10000=.0001
