A computer system uses passwords that contain exactly 4 characters, and each character is 1 of the 26 lowercase letters (a–z) or 26 uppercase letters (A–Z) or 10 integers (0–9). Let Ω denote the set of all possible passwords, and let A and B denote the events that consist of passwords with only letters or only integers, respectively. Determine the probability that a password contains at least 1 uppercase letter given that it contains only letters. Report answer to 3 decimal places.
