Third Business Day

What is the chance that the third business day of a month is Wednesday?

Assuming there is equal chance that the given month begins with any of the seven days of the week, the answer is 3/7. That’s because Saturday and Sunday are non-working days and therefore if the month starts with any of them, the third business day will be still Wednesday.
