So the probability of that is<br /><br />((3/24)^8)*((2/24)^12)*((4/24)^6)<br /><br />Multiply the results of those together and you get the probability to be<br /><br />1/5465062811999459151238583897240371200<br />or<br />1.83x10^-37Unknownhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04828859222988784102noreply@blogger.com
