Answer:

4/75

Step-by-step explanation:

We have two sample spaces

1.Lottery balls

2. Month of the year

For lottery balls the sample space is S= 50

Multiples of 3 between 1 and 50 are

(3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27,30,33,36,39,42,45,48)= 16 in numbers

Hence the probability of choosing a multiple of 3

Pr(multiple of 3) = 16/50= 8/25

Also the sample space for months of the year is S= 12

Two months starts with letter m, March and may

Pr(of months with m) = 2/12= 1/6

the probability of choosing a multiple of 3 and a month starting with the letter M= 8/25*1/6= 8/150= 4/75
