A mother bought three dress for her triplets daughters(one for each) and put the dresses in the dark. One by one the girls come and pick a dress.
What is the probability that no girl will choose her own dress?

1/3

Therefore the total number of cases are illustrated below.

Sister1 Sister2 Sister3
D1 D2 D3
D1 D3 D2
D2 D1 D3
D2 D3 D1 ..... (1)
D3 D1 D2 .... (2)

In both steps (1) & (2), no one gets the correct Dress.
Therefore probability that no sister gets the correct dress is 2/6 = 1/3

As shown in the picture below, There is a circular car race track of 10km. There are two cars, we called them Car A and Car B. And they are at the exact opposite end to each other. At Time T(0), Both cars move toward each other at a constant speed of 100m / seconds. As we know both cars are at the same speed they will always be the exact opposite to each other.
Note, at the center, there is a bug which starts flying towards Car A at time T(0). When the bug reaches car B, it turns back and starts moving towards the car A. The speed of bug is 1m/second. After 5hours all three stop moving.
What is the total distance covered by the bug?

As we know bug travels at a constant speed of 1m/seconds
=> in 5 hours
=> 5 * 60 * 60 meters
=> 18km.
