Miranda reaches into her sock drawer and pulls out a sock. There are 10 black socks, 6 white socks, and 4 blue socks. What is the probability that she will pull out a white sock?



To find the probability, divide the number of acceptable outcomes, in this case, the number of white socks, by the total number of possible outcomes. There are 6 white socks and a total of 20 socks. So the probability of getting a white sock is 6/20 which reduces to 3/10.
