the florida lottery is made up of the number 1-49. my mother observed that the winning numbers many times are prim numbers.
a. list the prime numbers from 1-49
b. what is the probability of a prime number being picked randomly from the numbers 1-49?
c. is the probability of picking a prime number greater than picking a number that is not prime?
look to previous for a
probability you can work out as
no. of prime / total no. of numbers
then x 100 for a percentages or leave as decimal
I searched Google under the key words "prime numbers" to get this:
a. List the number of primes within that range.
c. Primes/49 - non-primes/49 = ?
In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
I hope this helps.
