There are 32 popcorn balls in a box. Half have peanuts in them and 5 have chocolate chips in them. The rest are plain. If Kevin chooses a popcorn ball at random, what is the probability it will be plain?

first find out how many there are:

 

1/2 x 32 + 5 = 16 + 5 = 21

 

21 = how many are not plain

 

32-21=11.

 

There are 11 plain popcorn balls. this means that the chance of choosing a plain is $\boxed{\dfrac{11}{32}}$
