**ANSWER:**

Step 1 of 5

Given

Ohio Pick 4 In Ohio’s Pick 4 game, you pay $1 to select a sequence of four digits, such as 7709. If you buy only one ticket and win, your prize is $5000 and your net gain is $4999.

a)

If you buy one ticket, the probability of winning is.

Let we are altered to pick a 0 for the first digit.

Number of four digit sequence \(10 \times 10 \times 10 \times 10 \text { or } 10^{4}\)

So, Number of four digit = 10,000

Now if we buy one ticket \(=\frac{1}{10000}\)

= 0.0001

Therefore the probability of winning is 0.0001
