  1. These questions are not about algebra. They are about probability.

    1) Correct: 31x10x2

    2) There are 9 choices for the first digit, 8 for the second, etc. The answer is 9*8*7*6*5 = 9!/4!

    You chose incorrectly. Were you just guessing?

    3) Wrong. 7*6*5*4*3 = ?

    4) No. What did you choose D? A wild guess perhaps? I suggest you review the definition of "Combinations" and use the appropriate formula.

    5) Wrong again. When stating odds, the ratio of the first number to the sum of both numbers is the probability the first event will occur.
