Unformatted text preview: so with no repetitions whatsoever, there are 156, 000 × 720 = 11, 232, 000 license plates. (c) Therefore, the probability that a license plate with no repetitions is chosen at random from among 156000 all possible license plates including those with repetitions is given by 11232000 = 108 (= 0.639). 169 22.

The corresponding probability is hence (2!)6 7, 484, 400 = 0.0034.(you may leave the fraction as it is) 612 23.
