Question

Say you've got a candy sampler with 5 chocolates and 5 caramels. If you've already taken out one chocolate. You pick your second candy randomly: what's the probability that you will pick a caramel? Give your answer as a decimal rounded to two decimal places |

Answer #1

There are 32 chocolates in a box, all identically shaped. There
11 are filled with nuts, 13 with caramel, and 8 are solid
chocolate. You randomly select one piece, eat it, and then select a
second piece.
Find the following probabilities. Enter your answer in decimal
notation, rounded to the nearest thousandth.
(a) The probability of selecting 2 solid chocolates in a row
(b) If the first was a solid chocolate, the probability that the
second chocolate will be filled...

KEY INFORMATION:
Suppose you work for a candy company. The machine you
supervise produces candy-coated chocolate treats. The
machine is programmed to produces the chocolates so that
36%of the chocolates are coated that in
RED. The remaining 64% of the candies
are coated using an assortment of other colors.
Suppose you randomly select candies until you find a red
one. Find the probability that you will
find the first red candy in between two and five tries, including
two and five.

Let's say the three sections of this course have 50, 70, and 80
students, respectively. We randomly pick one student, and everyone
in the same section as that student gets a candy bar. What's the
expected number of candy bars we'd give out?

Suppose there is a bowl of 23 Hershey's Miniatures candy bars on
the table containing 5 Mr. Goodbars (G), 6Krackel bars (K), and 12
Hershey chocolate bars (H). Someone already ate all the Special
Dark chocolate bars since dark chocolate is good for you.
You are going to grab 7 bars, without replacement. (Who’d want to
replace them? We’d still eat ‘em).
Setup and calculate each probability below. Express your answer in
decimal form, rounded to at least 4 decimal...

For a certain candy, 10% of the pieces are yellow, 10% are
red, 15% are blue, 5% are green, and the rest are brown.
a) If you pick a piece at random, what is the probability that
it is brown? it is yellow or blue? it is not green? it is
striped?
b) Assume you have an infinite supply of these candy pieces from
which to draw. If you pick three pieces in a row, what is the
probability...

Candy Bowl"
You have a bowl of candy that contains 10 Snickers, 10 Milky
Ways, 10 Twix, and 10 M&M packs.
1. If in #4 you get a Milky Way, KEEP it, and select again, what
is the probability your second choice will be M&Ms?
2. What is the probability that in making two selections
(keeping out the first one), that you will choose two Snickers?
NOTE: Now I’m asking about the probability of both!
3. What is the probability...

You are saving money to go to graduate school. You've taken your
first job and you plan to save $628 each month into the bank
account that pays 6.69% compounded monthly for the next five years
for your grad school fund. How much money will you accumulate by
the end of year five?
Please round your answer to the second decimal without dollar
sign. e.g. 1.11

Can you walk me through the second part of this question? I got
the first part right, just dont understand the second.
