What is the probability that a randomly selected integer in the set { 1, 2, 3 ... 100 } is divisible by 2 and not divisible by 6? Express your answer as a common fraction.

ugh...

When I wanted to click "Show Preview", they deleted my answer...

So... here we go again:

$$\frac{\mbox{Total number of all possible solutions}}{\mbox{Total number of all solutions}}$$

In the set, we can choose 100 numbers $$\Rightarrow$$$$\frac{n}{100}$$, where n is a positive integer.

From those 100 numbers, ( 100 / 2 = ) 50 numbers are divisible by 2.

From those 50 numbers,

50 / 6 = 8 mod 2 $$\Rightarrow$$ 8 numbers

are divisible by 6.

Subtract both numbers $$\Rightarrow$$ 50 - 8 = 42 numbers, so

42 / 100 = 21 / 50 .

Thus, our answer is 21 / 50.

2 , 4 , 8 , 10 , 14 , 16 , 20 , 22 , 26 , 28 , 32 , 34 , 38 , 40 , 44 , 46 , 50 , 52 , 56 , 58 , 62 , 64 , 68 , 70 , 74 , 76 , 80 , 82 , 86 , 88 , 92 , 94 , 98 , 100>>Total==34 such integers.

The probability is: 34 / 100==17 / 50
