Probability of generating items.

When you go to the store it decides randomly how many items to sell. 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?

Re: Probability of generating items.

Are you serious?

If this is a real probability problem, why don't you post it without a "story"...
