I form a 3-digit number at random from the digits 1-9. What is the probability that my number has no repeated digits? All three digits the same? Exactly one repeated digit?

    please?

  • Math -

    number of cases with no repeating digits
    = 9x8x7 = 504
    number of cases where digits repeat
    = 9x9x9 = 729
    so prob(no repeating digits) = 504/729 = 56/81

    all 3 digits repeat, could be 111 , 222, .. 999
    or 9 of them
    prob = 9/729 = 1/81

    I am not clear what you mean by "exactly one repeated digit"

  • Math -

    one digit is repeated twice
