A person throws two dice, one the common cube and the other a regular tetrahedron, the number on the lowest face being taken in the case of the tetrahedron. What is the chance that the sum of the number thrown is not less five?


Correct option is

Total numbers of ways , because in a tetrahedron there are four faces and in a cube there are six faces. To obtain the favourablenumber of ways, we find the sum of coefficient of powers of x less than 5 in the expansion.    


and subtract this sum from 24.

Now the coefficient of x4 in (i) = 3   

The coefficient of x3 in (i) = 2

The coefficient of x2 in (i) = 1 

Sum of the coefficients = 6 

  m = Favourable number of ways = 24 – 6 = 18 




There are four machines and it is know that exactly two of them are faulty. They are tested, one by one, in a random order till both the faulty machines are indentified. Then the probability that only two tests are needed is
