The probability is $\frac{18}{25}$.
We know that total number of students is 350 Therefore, $n\left( S \right)=350$ Also, the number of students who attend public college is $252$. So, $n\left( E \right)=252$ Then, the required probability of students to attend a public college is given below: \begin{align} & \text{P}\left( \text{public} \right)=\frac{\text{Total number of students in public college}}{\text{Total number of students}} \\ & =\frac{252}{350} \\ & =\frac{18}{25} \end{align} Thus, the probability is $\frac{18}{25}$.
