# 4. A box contains 3 blue, 2 white and 4 red marbles. If a marble is drawn at random from the box, what is the probability that it will not be a white marble?

To find the probability of not drawing a white marble, we need to consider the total number of marbles in the box and the number of marbles that are not white. Given: 3 blue marbles 2 white marbles 4 red marbles
