**Question: What is the probability that a randomly selected day of a leap year**

**(with 366 possible days) is in April?**

**Answer**

The probability that a randomly selected day of a leap year (with 366 possible days)

is in April is$P\left(E\right)=0.0819$

The probability that a randomly selected day of a leap year (with 366 possible days) is in April is $P\left(E\right)=0.0819.$

As per the problem we have been asked to find that the probability that a randomly selected day of a leap year (with 366 possible days) is in April.

If S represents the sample space and E represents the event. Then the probability of occurrence of favourable event is given by the formula as below:

$P\left(E\right)=n\left(E\right)n\left(S\right)$

As we know that total no. of days in a leap year is $366=n\left(S\right).$

We also know that in the month of April, total number of days are $30=n\left(E\right).$

Now substitute the values in the above formula we get

$P\left(E\right)=30366\Rightarrow P\left(E\right)=15183\Rightarrow P\left(E\right)=0.0819$

The probability that a randomly selected day of a leap year (with 366 possible days) is in April is $P\left(E\right)=0.0819$
