**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 6:22pmSince the combination has already used 1, 2, and 3. Then the 4th digit must be either 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9.

So the probability must 1 out of 6 or 1/6.

**PsyDAG**, Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 6:26pmWith your data, I am confused too. How many total numbers are there?

Since the first 3 numbers cannot be repeated, the answer = 1/(total-3)
