Set A and B (Posted on 2002-05-29) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Consider the following two sets:

Set A = { 2,3,4,6 }
Set B = { 2,5,7,9 }

What is the probability that two randomly chosen elements from B would add up to be more than the product of two randomly chosen elements from A?

Solution I concur with the original | Comment 6 of 8 |
15 of 36, after manually working out all the cases using a simple "yes and no" method. There are 15 cases where the sum of B is Greater to the Product of A, and 19 cases where the Product of A is greater than the sum of B, this leaves 2 cases, ehich are those where the equal the same ( 2 cases in A = 12, 1 case in B = 12) 15/36 is the correct answer
