If an integer n is to be chosen at random from the integers [#permalink]  22 Aug 2006, 08:41
If an integer n is to be chosen at random from the integers 1 to 96, inclusive, what is the probability that n(n + 1)(n + 2) will be divisible by 8?

total ways to select n = 94

# of multiples of 8 from 1-96 = 12
These can be either n, n+1, n+2 => # of possible combinations = 12*3 = 36

also if either n or n+2 is a multiple of 4; the product will be a multiple of 8;
so # of multiple of 4 from 1-96 = 24; # of distinct multiples of 4 = 12
and these nos can be either n or n+2 => # of combinations = 12*2

so total = 60/94
