**PsyDAG**, Thursday, April 23, 2009 at 11:04amThe probability of picking the first number correctly is 1/56, since zero is included. Since the numbers are not replaced, the probability of the second is 1/55, the third, 1/54 and so on.

The probability of all events occurring is obtained by*multiplying*the individual probabilities.

The probability of either one event or another occurring is found by*adding*the probability of the individual events.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
