One number is chosen at random from the set {1, 2, 3, ..., 6}, and another number is chosen at random from the set {7, 8, 9, ..., 12}.  What is the probabilty that the product of the two numbers is even?

One number is chosen at random from the set {1, 2, 3, ..., 6},
and another number is chosen at random from the set {7, 8, 9, ..., 12}.  
What is the probabilty that the product of the two numbers is even?

 

\(\begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|} \hline \text{product} & 7 & 8 & 9 & 10 & 11 & 12 \\ \hline 1 & & even & & even& & even \\ \hline 2 & even& even& even& even& even& even \\ \hline 3 & & even & & even& & even \\ \hline 4 & even& even& even& even& even& even \\ \hline 5 & & even & & even& & even \\ \hline 6 & even& even& even& even& even& even \\ \hline \end{array}\)

 

The probabilty that the product of the two numbers is even is \(\dfrac{27}{36} = \mathbf{\dfrac{3}{4}}\)
