In the first round of a golf tournament there were 2 eagles, 16 birdies, 39 pars, 16 bogies, and 8 double bogies on the 18th hole. if a player is selected at random, what is the probability that he had a birdie on the 18th hole during the first round

Accepted Solution

To find the probability of having a birdie on the 18th hole, you will create a fraction with the number of birdies to the total number of outcomes.

16 birdies
79 total

Divide these to find the probability.

16/79 = 0.20

There is an approximate 20% probability of getting a birdie based on these outcomes.
