**Q.**It is estimated that 60% of kids like milkshakes and 70% of kids like to go to the park to play. Using a simulator that generates random two-digit numbers using the digits 0 through 9, estimate the probability that a random kid will not like milkshakes and does not like to go to the park to play.

Note: The ones place of a two-digit number and 1 through 6 represents kids who like milkshakes.

The tens place of the two-digit number and 1 through 7 represents kids liking to go to the park to play.

**Q.**It is estimated within a group of people that 80% people have health insurance, 90% people have tea in the morning, and 60% people exercise regularly. Using the simulator that generates random three-digit numbers using digits from 0 through 9, work out the probability that the person chosen has health insurance, drinks tea in the morning, and exercises everyday.

Note: The ones place of a three-digit number and 1 through 6 represents people doing regular exercise.

The tens place of the three-digit number and 1 through 9 represents people who drink tea.

The hundreds place of the three-digit number and 1 through 8 represents people having health insurance.
