Prime number: 2,3,5,7
number of 2 digit integers whose digit are both prime: 4A2=12 number
number in set divisible by 3: 27,72, 57,75; 4 number
Probability that N is divisible by 7: 4/12=1/3
assuming 2 number is different=>wrong answer

The 4 digits which are prime numbers are 2,3,5, or 7. N can have 16(4*4) possibilities.

For any number with 2 digits, the sum of the 2 digits must be divisible by 3.

There are 2 possibilities for the 2-digit number to be divisible by 3
1. When digits differ - (2,7) and (5,7) - 4 such numbers | 2. Same digit - (3,3) - 1 such number

Therefore, the probability that N is divisible by 3 is $$\frac{5}{16}$$(Option D)

N=_ _
there are 4 prime numbers less than 10: 2,3,5,7
therefore the total events equal 4*4=16
to be divisible by 3, sum of the digits of the number must be divisible by 3.
2+7=9
3+3=6
5+7=12
7+2=9
7+5=12

p=5/16
option D
