To find this, we must first find the probability of not choosing a cherry fruit chew. We have a total of 20 options, and only 8 of those are cherry fruit chews, so we can simply do 20-8 to see what the probability of not choosing a cherry fruit chew is. 20-8=12 Therefore, the probability is 12/20, which can be simplified to 3/5.
