3 of the 6 vertices of a regular hexagon are chosen at random find the probability that the triangle with three vertices is equilateral.

out of 6 vertices, the number of ways to choose 3 vertices are

the number of equilateral triangles that can be drawn from the vertices of a hexagon = 2


therefore the required probability = 2/2= = 1/10


hope this helps you.
