It will sell from 7 to 14 items each time. Then it decides randomly what type that item will be. Can be a book, stave, scroll, rejuvination potion and elixir. So 5 different types of items. After it selects which items to sell it selects from the pool of those particular items. So it decides to sell a stave then it must give it a prefix(40 options) and a suffix(36 options). And there are 24 books available. How do I find probability of getting a stave with 1 particular prefix and 1 particular suffix? And how do I find probability of getting a particular book?

If this is a real probability problem, why don't you post it without a "story"... stave/ste?v/ Show Spelled [steyv] noun 1. one of the thin, narrow, shaped pieces of wood that form the sides of a cask, tub, or similar vessel. 2. a stick, rod, pole, or the like. 3. a rung of a ladder, chair, etc. 4.
