What is the probability that a leap year will contain 53 Sundays?




Step by Step Explanation:

    Apart from these there will be two other days.
  3. The two days could be (Sunday, Monday), (Monday, Tuesday), (Tuesday, Wednesday), (Wednesday, Thursday), (Thursday, Friday), (Friday, Saturday) or (Saturday, Sunday) - a total of seven combinations.
  4. Out of these seven combinations, two of them have a Sunday.
  5. So, the probability that either of those two days will be a Sunday is
