We have a total amount of outcomes at:  6+4+7 = 17 Thus, let us compute the chance of NOT picking the Popular Science magazine needed (since each event is independent of one another): P(E1) P(E2) P(E3) = 16/17 * 15/16 * 14/15 * 13/14 = 16P4/17P4 = 13/17 Therefore the probability of picking the December 1st edition is: 1 - P(En) = 1 -13/17 = 4/17 The probability of picking the December 1st edition is 4/17. I hope my answer has come to your help. Thank you for posting your question here in Brainly.
