weird way to put the answer
 one year ago

swissgirl Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ok so basically the probability that you will get a multiple of 5 is a 1/5 meaning that for every 5 picks one out of the 5 picks will be a multiple of 5. In other words 1 pick will be a multiple of 5 while the other 4 will not. Do you follow @HELP!!!!
