S = {2,3,5,7}
Winning sets (3,5) (3,7) (5,7)

# of ways to pick 2 numbers = 4C2 = 6

P = 3/6 = 1/2

Ywilfred - How did you calculate winning set - Winning sets (3,5) (3,7) (5,7) ?

Since there are only four elements in the set, you can quickly calculate, say if we pick 2 and 3, the product would be 6, and the product of the remaining numbers would be 35 and so (2,3) cannot be a winning set since 6 < 35.
