10 digit phone number :-- 703 _ _ _ _ _ _ _
In this case ,their is no restriction on repeation of digits (as per question)
There are 8 ways to pick the first digit that follow 703 code (since 0 or 1 cannot be take the value at empty place ),
Now,ways to pick the 2nd digit is 10(from 0 to 9 all values are accepted)
Similarly,ways to pick tye 3rd,4th,5th,6th and 7th digit that follows 703 code is 10 for each (since from 0 to 9 all values are accepted)
Therefore the total phone number that are possible for the 703 area code if the first digit that follows the 703 cannot be a 0 or a 1 is:---
8 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 = 8 × 10 6 = 8000000
Answer:--8000000 phone numbers are possible for the 703 area code if the first digit that follows the 703 cannot be a 0 or a 1.

Max and Stephen are at a restaurant and will each order either a burger or a pizza. The probability Max orders a burger is 0.6 (i.e. 60%). The probability that Stephen orders a pizza is 0.5. The probability that both Max and Stephen order a burger is 0.34. Answer the following questions. Hint: Let M be the event that Max orders a burger and S be the event that Stephen orders a burger. Calculate the probability that Max orders a burger given that Stephen orders a burger.

A class is taking a multiple choice test with 10 questions where each question has four possible answers. Assume that the answer to any question is independent of that to any other answer. Robert has forgotten to study for this test, so he simply guesses for each question. 
What is the probability that Robert guesses exactly 8 of the questions correctly?
What is the probability that Robert gets an 80% or better? Another way of saying this is, what is the probability that he guesses 8 or more questions correctly? This would be the probability of 8 plus the probability of 9 plus the probability of 10.
