Question

A bowl contains 5 candies - red, brown, yellow, blue, and orange. Draw 2 candies at random, one for you to eat, and one for a friend. What is the probability that you get one orange candy and your friend does not get the red one?

Answer #1

Find the probability in given question.

A bowl contains 6 brown, 3 red, 4 yellow, and 2 blue pieces of
candy. If you choose 2 at random (without replacing the first) what
the probability that: a. the frrst is red and the second is yellow
b. the flIst is yellow and the second is red c. one is red and the
other is yellow (in either order)/ d. both are brown?

For a certain candy, 20% of the pieces are yellow, 5% are
red, 15% are blue, 10% 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...

each colour?

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

M&Ms are multicolored candies in a bag with six colors:
Brown, Blue, Red, Yellow, Green and Orange. Mars now claims that
all six colors are equally likely. In an attempt to reject the
claim, an 8-oz bag of M&Ms was purchased and the colors
counted. The results of the count are below. Does this sample
contradict Mars’ claim when α = 0.10? Brown Blue Red Yellow Green
Orange 37 41 32 25 36 39 If the claim is true what...

A bag of Candy contains yellow, orange and brown colored pieces
(each candy is one solid color). There is plenty of each color in
the bag. a. If we reach in and grab a handful of ten candies, how
many different color combinations are possible? Keep in mind that
candies of the same color are considered identical. b. How many ten
candy combinations are possible where at least one of each color is
drawn? c. Suppose we instead draw candies...

Plain M&M's come in 6 different colors (Blue, Orange, Green,
Yellow, Red, Brown) and are produced at two different plants.
M&M's that come from a plant in Tennessee are supposed to have
the following distribution of colors: 20.7% Blue; 20.5% Orange;
19.8% Green; 13.5% Yellow; 13.1% Red and 12.4% Brown. Quality
control at the plant is concerned the machine is not working
