The probability is $\frac{18}{25}$.

Work Step by Step

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 $\frac{18}{25}$.
