To find the probability of selecting a fruitflavored candy, we need to determine the ratio of fruitflavored candies to the total number of candies using the given information.
Given that the jar contains 20 candies, with 12 fruitflavored and 8 chocolateflavored candies, we can calculate the probability using the basic probability formula:
Probability of selecting a fruitflavored candy = Number of fruitflavored candies / Total number of candies
Probability = 12 / 20
Simplifying the fraction, we get:
Probability = 3 / 5
Therefore, the probability is 3/5 or 0.6 (60% chance of selecting a fruitflavoured candy).
