Probability = (favorable cases)/(total number of cases)
Total number of ways in which a person can ride car = 3*3*3 = 27
(In first ride he has 3 options to sit, in second right again he has 3 seats available to sit and so on)
Number of favorable cases, i.e., when he rides on different cars;
He can choose seat car in 3 ways in his 1st ride.
He can choose seat car in 2 ways in his 2nd ride.
He can choose seat car in 1 ways in his 3rd ride.
So, 3*2*1 = 6 ways
Thus, probability of choosing different seats = 6/27 = 2/9
