10 cards are numbered from 1 to 10 and placed in a box. One card is selected at random and is not replaced. Another card is then randomly selected. What is the probability of selecting two prime numbers?

There are 9*10=90 possible combinations. There are 3*4=12 possible prime number combinations: (2,3), (2,5), (2,7), (3,2), (3,5), (3,7), (5,2), (5,3), (5,7), (7,2), (7,3), (7,5). The probability is 12/90=2/15.
