  1. Total number of pieces of paper
    = 26 (=26 letters)
    Total number of vowels
    = 5 (AEIOU)
    So probability of drawing a vowel
    = 5/26

    If y is counted as a vowel, then there are six of them, and the probability will be increased accordingly.

  3. Each letter of the alphabet is written on a piece of paper and put in a hat. If a piece of paper is chosen at random, what is the probability that it will be a vowel?
    the number of favorable out comes 5
    the number of possible outcomes is 26
    so P(vowel))= 5/26, or about 19 percent
