To determine

To find:

The probability of winning of the contestant.

Explanation

Approach:

The probability of an event E is given by,

P(E)=n(E)n(S)

Calculation:

The contestant knows the first digits, so the contestant needs to guess the remaining four digits only.

The numbers of ways in which the contestant can guess the remaining four digits will give the sample space.

Out of the sample space, only one element will be favorable.

The numbers of ways in which the contestant can guess the remaining four digits is,

n=4×3×2×1=24

The probability of winning of the contestant is,
