At a fete, cards bearing numbers 1 to 1000, one number on one card are put in a box. Each player selects one card at random and that card is not replaced. If the selected card has a perfect square number greater than 500, the player wins a prize. What is the probability that the first player wins a prize?

#### Solution

222 = 484

312 = 961

322 = 1024

23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31 has squares below 500 × 1000.

P(first player wins a prize) = 9/1000
