**Math Riddle Answers**

You must have figured out the answers by now. Still, we are going to reveal the answers so you can cross-check your answers.

**Math Riddle #1**

The likelihood that a song by a specific band will be played is proportional to the number of songs of the particular band divided by all songs.

Since the selection is arbitrary and songs may be performed more than once, the likelihood that a certain song will be played does not depend on what has been played previously.

**Hence, 5/15=⅓. **

**Math Riddle #2**

Calculating the total number of balloons in the bag:

47 + 5 + 10 = 62

Number of black balloons = 10

So, 10/62 x 100 = 16%

Hence, the probability of picking a black balloon is** 16%.**

**Math Riddle #3**

If there are 2 winners for every 100 tickets sold, then there is one winner for every 50 tickets.

The probability of which is 1/50.

The probability of a given ticket not winning is 49/50.

If all of the ten tickets are non-winners, then the probability of that will be:

(49/50)^10 which approximates 0.81

Now, calculating the probability that none of the tickets win and subtracting the obtained data by 1.

Therefore, the probability of atleast one winning ticket is: 1 - 0.817 = 0.183 = **18.3%**

We hope that you had fun with this math riddle.
