Week 351 (28th June 2024)

Two different football teams, football team A and football team B, attended a tournament.

12% of the attendees were coaches, the rest were players.

47% of the attendees were from football team A.

48% of the attendees were players from football team B.

One of the attendees is selected at random. Find the probability that they are a coach from football team A.


First we need to find out the number of coaches from football team B.

As the total of attendees from both teams must equal 100%, then:

Coaches from team B = 100% – 47% – 48% = 5%

As we know that the coaches accounted for 12% of the attendees, then:

Coaches from team A = 12% -5% = 7%
