Best answer

Let x be the number
If 1200 < x < 1300
Then thousands digit will be 1
Hundreds digit will be 2
Tens digit has 3 choices 1, 3, 9
Units digit has 3 choice 1, 3, 9
Total four digit numbers = 1*1*3*3 = 9
If 1250 < x then
Thousands digit will be 1
Hundreds digit will be 2
Tens digit will be 9
Units digit has 3 choice = 1, 3, 9
Total four digit numbers = 1*1*1*3 = 3
Probability = 3/9 = 1/3
