E?

1-P trick

Prob that you don't land within 14 spaces of 49 (1 to 34, so tech 35 and 64 to 100, so 37 spots- together 72 spots out of 100

1-72%= 28%

Please help me here...my first stab trying to stay close to 2 min mark. Thx

OA is E

required prob is 7 spaces any side of 49.
so total 14 spaces are required in 7 moves which can be achieved by max 7 move on any side
so total spaces = 28
probability = 28%
