**Anonymous**, Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 11:36ami know but the question is to find the probability of even number from 1-8 which is 4/8 and multiples of 3 from 1-8 which is 2/8. so if you add them isn't the answer 6/8

**Reiny**, Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 12:02pmDon't blame saiko, you didn't even ask the correct question originally

so you want the prob( the number is even**And**multiples of 3)

the evens are 2 4 6 8

multiples of 3 are 3 6

so the only number which is even and is a multiple of 3 is the number 6

so the prob(of your event) = 1/8

if your sentence would contain the word OR, then there would be 5 numbers, and the

prob = 5/8

What is the actual question?
