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.

1.
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"
