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. 0
2. 0
3. 27

2. Count the number of prime numbers under 50 and divide by 49.

3. 1 - the above answer is the probability of picking a nonprime number.

I hope this helps.
