It is 1/7.

It is (5/14)^2 = 0.1276, approx.

The sample space is {m, a, t, h, e, i, c, s} which, curiously, is also the sample space for choosing a letter from my user name!

The number of permutations of the letters MATHEMATICS is 11 factorial or 39,916,800. However, since the M is repeated once you must divide by 2. You must also divide by 2 because the A is repeated once. And again for the T. This results in an overall distinct permutation count of 4,989,600.

well i am assunming you mean 'm' in linear graphs. it means the gradient in the linear equation y=mx+c.

If picked at random, the answer is 2/11.

It is 1/7.

There are eight different letters in 'mathematics' - a, c, e, h, i, m, s and t. Since there are 26 letters in the alphabet, the chance of a randomly chosen one being a letter that's in mathematics is 8/26, or 4/13.

In the first two draws, the probability is 1/15.

It is (5/14)^2 = 0.1276, approx.

Multisystem! Hope That Helps!

The answer depends on the set of cards from which the picking is done. Unfortunately, you have provided absolutely no information on that.

The word mathematics has 11 letters; 2 are m, a, t. The number of distinguishable permutations is 11!/(2!2!2!) = 39916800/8 = 4989600.
