# You have the numbers 1-24 written on a slip of paper. If you chose one slip at random what is the probability that you will not select a number which is divisible by 6?

The probability is

Generally speaking, the probability of choosing a number that is divisible by 6 is ~1/6 if you have n slips of paper numbered 1 to N (where N is a large positive integer, say 100). If N is exactly divisible by 6, the probability is exactly 1/6, i.e.

If you had selected 24 instead, there would have been 4: 61, 62, 63, 64 = 6,12, 18, and 24.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
