## gabbyalicorn one year ago Cards numbered 1 through 30 are placed in a bag and shuffled. One card is chosen at random. What is the probability of randomly selecting a number less than or equal to 5, or a multiple of 7? https://www.dropbox.com/s/n43kflbepqbgbdm/Screenshot%202015-06-16%2018.54.18.png?dl=0

HI!!

3. misty1212

4. misty1212

how many numbers are less than or equal to five? (don't think too hard for this one)

5. gabbyalicorn

Hello! I think 1 2 3 4 5

6. misty1212

those are the numbers, the question is "how many" of them are there?

7. gabbyalicorn

oh, 5

8. misty1212

right

9. misty1212

now how many multiples of 7 are less than 30?

10. gabbyalicorn

4

11. misty1212

ok good, so how many total?

12. gabbyalicorn

9

13. misty1212

right

14. misty1212

9 out of 30 total is your answer, or as a fraction $\frac{9}{30}$ which you probably want to reduce

15. gabbyalicorn

so then 3/10 ?

16. misty1212

yes

17. gabbyalicorn
