##### Number properties, divisibility, GCF

Hi guys,

Is there a quick way to solve this question? The method I used involved a lot of work and time.

Thank you Brent!

I did it this way: Total no. of outcomes = 1000 x 800

Favourable outcomes = 60 x 1

Probability = 60/800000 = 3/40000

Is this method correct?
