2/9

Any car first time
two of the three second time
one of the three third time

1*2/3*1/3 = 2/9

I would say 2/9.

Prob of drive a different car the first time(obviously) is 1
Prof of drive a different car the second time is 2/3
Prob of drive a different car the thid time is 1/3

1* (2/3) * (1/3)= 2/9


Right?

Ps..Ranga I didn't mean to copy it..I just sent it later=)
