If x, y can take values from the set (1, 2, 3, 4), find the probability that the product of x and y is not greater than 6

  • A.
    (frac{5}{8})
  • B.
    (frac{5}{16})
  • C.
    (frac{1}{2})
  • D.
    (frac{3}{8})
Correct Answer: Option A
Explanation

(begin{vmatrix}& hline 1 & 2 & 3 & 4\hline 1 & 1 & 2& 3 & 4\2 & 2& 4 & 6 & 8\ 3& 3& 6& 9 & 12\4 & 4 & 8 & 12& 16end{vmatrix})
p (product of x, and y (leq) 6) = (frac{10}{16})
= (frac{5}{8})
