Question

Two balls are drawn in succession out of a box containing 7 red and 3 white balls. Find the probability that the second ball was red, given that the first ball was: (A) replaced before the second draw. (B) not replaced before the second draw.

Answer #1

a) P(second ball was red | first ball was replaced) = P(red) = 7 / 10 = 0.7

b) P(second ball was red | first ball was not replaced) = P(second ball is red and first ball is white) + P(second ball is red and first ball is red)

= 7/9 * 3/10 + 6/9 * 7/10

= 0.7

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

replaced from the same urn. If both balls are white, what are the
following probabilities? (Round your answers to three decimal
places.)
