Tickets numbered 1 to 20 are mixed up and then a ticket is drawn at random. What is the probability that the ticket drawn has a number which is a multiple of 3 or 5?

multiples of 3 = 3;6;9;12;15;18 = 6 numbers

multiples of 5 = 5;10;15;20 = 4 , but 15 is a multiple of both 3 and 5 so we have 3 numbers ,

Total probability = 6/20 + 3/20

                        = 9/20
