Solution

## Total favourable outcomes associated to the random experiment of visiting a particular shop in the same week (Tuesday to Saturday) by two customers Shyam and Ekta are: (T,T) (T,W) (T,TH) (T,F) (T,S) (W,T) (W,W) (W,TH) (W,F) (W,S) (TH,T) (TH,W) (TH,TH) (TH,F) (TH,S) (F,T) (F,W) (F,TH) (F,F) (F,S) (S,T) (S,W) (S,TH) (S,F) (S,S) ∴ Total number of outcomes = 25 Number of favourable outcomes of visiting on different days are 25 - 5 = 20 ∴ Number of favourable outcomes = 20 Hence, required probability = 2025=45
