Question

Suppose that there is a white urn containing three white balls and one red ball and there is a red urn containing two white balls and four red balls. An experiment consists of selecting at random a ball from the white urn and then (without replacing the first ball) selecting at random a ball from the urn having the color of the first ball. Find the probability that the second ball is red. -please state answer in fraction-

An urn contains 3 white balls and 7 red balls. A second urn
contains 7 white balls and 3 red balls. An urn is selected, and the
probability of selecting the first urn is 0.2. A ball is drawn from
the selected urn and replaced. Then another ball is drawn and
replaced from the same urn. If both balls are white, what are the
following probabilities? (Round your answers to three decimal
places.)
(a) the probability that the urn selected...

9.84. Suppose an urn has b blue balls and r red balls. An
experiment consists of picking a ball at random from the urn, note
its color and then put it back into the urn and add one more ball
of the same color to the urn. Suppose we repeat this experiment
twice. What is the probability that we get a blue ball in the
second attempt?

Three balls are randomly chosen from an urn containing 3 white,
4 red and 5 black balls. Suppose one will win $1 for each white
ball selected, lose 1$ for each red ball selected and receive
nothing for each black ball selected. Let Random Variable X denote
the total winnings from the experiment. Find E(X).

Suppose that an urn contains 8 red balls and 4
white balls. We draw 2 balls
from the urn without replacement.
Now suppose that the balls have
different weights, with each red ball having weight
r and each white ball having weight w. Suppose that the
probability that a given ball in
the urn is the next one selected is its weight divided by the
sum of the weights of all
balls currently in the urn.
Now what is the...

Suppose that there are 2 red balls, 2 blue ball, and 1 white
balls in an urn. A ball is drawn and its color is noted. After
the ball is drawn, it is set aside and is replaced with a blue
ball. Another ball is then drawn from the urn.
Find the probability the first ball drawn was red given that the
second ball drawn was blue.

An urn contains 8 white balls and 4 red balls. The experiment
consists of drawing 2 balls at random from the urn without
replacement.
a) What is the probability that both will be the same color?
b) Same question for part A, but with replacement.

One urn contains 10 red balls and 10 white balls, a second urn
contains 8 red balls and 4 white balls, and a third urn contains 5
red balls and 10 white balls. An urn is selected at random, and a
ball is chosen from the urn. If the chosen ball is white, what is
the probability that it came from the third urn? Justify your
answer.

An urn contains two red balls and three white balls.
If a ball is chosen at random, what is the probability that it
is white?

Two balls are selected with replacement from an urn containing 7
red and 3 blue balls a. What is the probability that both balls are
red? b. What is the probability that both balls are blue? c. What
is the probability that the first ball is red and the second is
ball is blue? d. What is the probability that the first ball is
blue and the second ball is red? e. What is the probability that

From an urn containing 3 white and 2 black balls, two balls
are drawn one after the other
without replacement. What is the probability that the first
ball drawn is white and the
second black?
