Tree diagram, probability in card selection, math instructors

2. A mini license plate for a toy car must consist of three numbers followed by a letter. Each number must be a 1, 3, or 5. Repetition of digits is NOT permitted. Each letter must be an A, B or C.

- Use the counting principle to determine the number of points in the sample space.
- Construct a tree diagram to represent this situation
- List the sample space.
- Determine the exact probability of creating a mini license plate with a C. Give solution exactly in reduced fraction form.

4. A card is selected from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. A standard deck of cards has 12 face cards and four Aces (Aces are not face cards). Find the probability of selecting

- a three given the card is a not a face card.
- a four, given that the card is not a diamond.
- a Jack given the card is not a face card.

Show step by step work. Give all solutions exactly in reduced fraction form.
