A box of candy contains two types of chocolates. One type is made with nuts, and the other type is nut free. The box contains 6 times more candies with nuts than candies without nuts. Johnny pulls a candy out of the box at random. What is the probability that Johnny pulled out a candy without nuts?

With out  nuts =  w

with nuts = 6w

 

total candies =   w + 6w = 7w

 

 

prob =   w   out of 7w  =    w/7w =   1/7
