  1. Each letter has a probability of 1/26 and the numeral has a 1/10 probability. Multiply the eight probabilities and the denominator of the product will be you answer for a.

    The probability for "math4you" is the above product. The probability for "math" = (1/26)^4.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
