Each integer from 1 to 50 whose units digit is a 3 is written on a slip of paper and placed in a box.
So, the numbers in the box are: 3, 13, 23, 33, and 43 (5 numbers)
Among those 5 numbers, the primes are: 3, 13, 23, and 43 (4 numbers)

P(both are prime) = P(1st number is prime AND 2nd number is prime)
= P(1st number is prime) x P(2nd number is prime)
= 4/5 x 3/4
= 3/5

Answer: 3/5
