You have the numbers 1–25 written on slips of paper. If you choose one slip at random, what is the probability that you will select a number that is divisible by 4?
1/5, 62/25, 4/25, 2/3

4 8 12 16 20 24 is 6 numbers
6/25
If you do not count 4 itself then
5/25 = 1/5

To Damon:
Oh my gosh! Thank you so much. I kept comimg up with 6/25 too, but I knew it wasn't one of the options. It didn't occur to me that 4 might not be included. I really appreciate you pointing tha tout to me. It seems so simple, but I just couldn't get it.
