Question 7

Time: 00:00:00
McDonald's ran a campaign in which it gave game cards to its customers. These game cards made it possible for customers to win hamburgers, French fries, soft drinks, and other fast-food items, as well as cash prizes. Each card had 10 covered spots that could be uncovered by rubbing them with a coin. Beneath three of these spots were "No Prize" signs. Beneath the other seven spots were names of prizes, two of which were identical.

For example, one card might have two pictures of a hamburger, one picture of a Coke, one of the French fries, one of a milkshake, one of 5 Dollar, one of 1000 Dollar and three "No Prize" signs. For this card, the customer could win a hamburger.

To win on any card, the customers had to uncover the two matching spots (which showed the potential prize for that card) before uncovering a "No Prize"; any card with a "No Prize" uncovered was automatically void. Assuming that the two matches and the three "No Prize" signs were arranged randomly on the cards, what is the probability of a customer winning?
