1) Number of ways letters can be put in envelopes = 5!
Number of ways to put them correctly = 1
Thus, probability = 1/5! = 120

2) Number of ways letters can be put in envelopes = 5!
Number of ways of getting exactly two wrong = 5C3*1*1 = 10
Thus probability = 10/120 = 1/12

Stolyar, what are the correct answers..
