There are 113 identical plastic chips numbered 1 through 113 in a box. What is the probability of reaching into the box and randomly drawing a chip number that is greater than 44?

We want 45, 46, … 113

The formula to get inclusive number count between and including 2 numbers is:

Total numbers = L - S + 1

Total numbers = 113 - 45 + 1

Total numbers = 69

That is 69 possible numbers. We draw this out of a total of 113

**P(Number > 44) = 69/113**

**P(Number > 44)**= 0.610619
