To find the probability of selecting a fruit-flavored candy, we divide the number of fruit-flavored candies by the total number of candies in the jar.<div>
</div><div>Number of fruit-flavored candies = 12</div><div>Total number of candies = 20</div><div>Probability of selecting a fruit-flavored candy = Number of fruit-flavored candies / Total number of candies</div><div>
</div><div>Probability = 12 / 20 = 0.6</div><div>
</div><div>Therefore, the probability of selecting a fruit-flavored candy is 0.6 or 60%.</div>

To find the probability of selecting a fruit-flavored candy, we need to determine the ratio of fruit-flavored candies to the total number of candies using the given information.

Given that the jar contains 20 candies, with 12 fruit-flavored and 8 chocolate-flavored candies, we can calculate the probability using the basic probability formula:-

Probability of selecting a fruit-flavored candy = Number of fruit-flavored 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 fruit-flavoured candy).
