The probability that the event will happen is $0.85$

#### Explanation:

There areonly two possibilities, one - event happening and two - event not happening. As probabbility of event not happening is $0.15$ i.e. 15% possibikity of event not happening,

possibility that event will happen is 100%-15%=85%

Hence the probability that the event will happen is $0.85$
