As we learnt in 

Probability of occurrence of an event -

Let S be the sample space then the probability of occurrence of an event E is denoted by P(E) and it is defined as 

P\left ( E \right )=\frac{n\left ( E \right )}{n\left ( S \right )}

P\left ( E \right )\leq 1

P(E)=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\left(\frac{r}{n} \right )

- wherein

Where n repeated experiment and E occurs r times.


If the product of the digit is zero, ticket must be one of 00, 01, 02, --- 09, 10, 20, 30, 40.

Total of 14 numbers, only one with sum= 8.
