    Probability of an outcome is taken by the expected event over the total number of events of a sample space.

    If the car and trip are both grand prizes you are correct. If not there is a 20% chance of getting a grand prize.

    In my opinion there would be only one grand prize. So the probability of getting a grand prize is 1/5 and a normal price is 4/5.
