Total ways to choose N = 99
Number of ways to choose N such that n*(n+1) is divisible by 3 = 33 + 33 = 66
{N must be a mutiple of 3 or one integer less than the multiple of 3 for above to hold true}
Thus, probability = 66/99 = 2/3

Question for you Vicky. Is this correct- A quick way to find the multiples of three between 1 and 99 is to make 1=3^1 and 99=3*33. Thus the number of integers that are multiples of 3 is the number of integers between 1 and 33. Which would be 33.

Thanks,
