The Florida Lottery is made up of the numbers 1-49. My mother has observed that the winning numbers many times are prime numbers.
1.List the prime numbers from 1-49:
2.What is the probability of a prime number being picked randomly from the numbers 1-49?
3.Is the probability of picking a prime number greater than picking a number that is not prime?
1. ... easy, just list them, 2 is the first prime, 47 the last.
2. Put the number from 1) over 49
3. take 1 - (answer from 2)
I just felt like asking what are the numbers because Reiny really didn't help so LIST the numbers instead of telling how to do it
In sohcol Math wasn't my favourite subject but I now realise its importance in everyday life and enjoy it much more. Do you recommend any books on math for everyday situations?
