QUESTION: 1

### From a pack of 52 cards, the cards are drawn one by one till an ace appears. The chance that an ace does not come up in first 26 cards is

Solution:

There are 4 aces in a pack. So, the probability of drawing an ace = 4/52
= 1/13
and the probability of drawing a card other than ace = 12/13.
Hence, the probability that ace doesn't appear in first 26 draws = (12/13)26

QUESTION: 2

### Three of the 6 vertices of a regular hexagon are chosen at random.The probability that the triangle with these vertices is equilateral is

Solution:

Let T represent the equilateral triangles
n(T)= No. if equilateral triangle, with six vertices ABCDEF of regular hexagon, are only two namely △ACE;△BDF
and n(S)= Total no. of triangles with six vertices are = 6C3 = 20
P(T) = n(T)/n(S) = 2/20 = 1/10
