How many three-digit numbers containing only even digits are divisible by 9?90306010010A number is divisible by 9 if the sum of its digits is divisible by 9.

For 3 digits numbers, maximum possible sum is 27 ( 9+9+9), which leaves us with the only possible sum divisible by 9 being 18.

Even numbers whose sums of threes could be 18 are 6+6+6 , 2+8+8, 4+6+8

Possible arrangement of these numbers are 1+ 3 + 3 = 10

Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?"
What is the probability of winning by picking door No.2?
1 / 3 1 / 21 / 42 / 3 12 / 3This is the famous Monty Hall problem.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Hall_problem

There are three doors O O O
each has probability of 1/3, 1/3 ,1/3.
Let's say you have choosen a door (Y) with probability of 1/3 , the combined probability of the next two doors is 2/3.
(Y) O O
If the show host open non prize door X.
(Y) O X

Your choosen door still has probability of 1/3. while the remaining non-opened door O has 2/3 (from the previous combined probility of O and X).
