Find the probability that any of these bags chosen at random contains more than 5 kg of flour.

Answer :

Number of total bags = 11

Number of bags containing more than 5 kg of flour = 7

Hence, required probability = \(P = \frac{7}{11}\)

Therefore, the probability that any of these bags chosen at random contains more than 5 kg of flour is \(\frac{7}{11}\).
