How do you find the probability of numbers such as two people need to choose a number between let's say 1 and 5. I would need to find the probability that they choose the same number.

The next problem is about possible outcomes. How do you find the outcomes for three numbers like 3 boats, 5 cars, 3 trains. I am stuck how to find out the possible outcomes.

Then lastly finding probabilities of percents. I have to put the question because i have no other way to ask it. 80% of adults drink beer. Choose 4 adults at random. What is the probability none of them drink beer.
