there are 3 cars and the requirement is that the person rides in 3 different cars

When he rides for the first time it does not matter wihch car he rides So P of riding in any one car for the first time(because there are 3 choices now) is 3/3
Now when he rides second time there are still 3 cars but he should ride in any one of the two cars other than the first one (because there only 2 choices )
so P = 2/3
FInally there are still 3 cars but he can ride only in 1 because he has already used two cars so P = 1/3

Total number of Pb = 3 x 3 x 3= 9 (each time he has three options and he rides thrice)
Favorable deals = 3 x 2 x 1 (He has three options to use for the first and two for the next, three for the last).
Pb = 6/27 = 2/9
