The probability of rain tomorrow is $\frac{1}{11}$. What is the probability that it will not rain tomorrow? Express your answer as a common fraction.

sorry this is a repeat, but it changed. It wasn't readable before.

The answer would be the opposite of the probability that it will rain. So if 1/11 is how likely it will rain, you would take the opposite. The probability that it will not rain is does not include how much it will rain. So the total fraction, 11/11 minus how much it will rain, 1/11 is 10/11. The answer is 10/11.
