Here's the Solution to this Question
Probability of getting one grape, 1 cherry and 1 lemon ball = 0.03472
Numbers of grapes flavored balls = 300
Numbers of cheer flavored balls = 400
Numbers of lemon flavored balls = 500
Total number of balls = 300 + 400 + 500 = 1200
Probability of getting 1 grape ball = 300/1200 = 0.25
Probability of getting 1 cherry ball = 400/1200 = 0.3334
Probability of getting 1 lemon ball = 500/1200 = 0.0.41667
Probability of getting one grape, 1 cherry and 1 lemon ball =
