1.) A random digit from 1 to 9 (inclusive) is chosen, with all digits being equally likely. The probability that when it's squared it will end with the digit 1.

2.) A random number between 1 and 20 (inclusive) is chosen. The probability that its square root will not be an integer.

Note that

21*21=441

49*49=2401

Does that give you a hint?

2.

The question looks for

"The probability that its square root will**not**be an integer"

so check your answer accordingly.

**Anna**, Thursday, August 21, 2014 at 11:27amQuestion: why is it not 2/9? Since I know 1 squared will be 1, which ends in 1, but what about 9? 9 squared is 81, it ends in 1. So that makes 2/9 = 0.22
