Probability of White Atleast once = 1 – Probability of not white

= 1 -(5/6)^100

There are 6 balls and out of those 6 balls, one ball is white. So the probability of getting a white ball when we draw once is 1/6.

Hence the probability of doing the same thing 100 times is = (1/6)^100.

Probability of drawing the white marble at least once = 1- probability of getting black marble all the time

=1-(5/6)^100
