Question

Bag
contains 4 yellow blocks, 6 white ,7 green. If 2 blocks are pulled
from bag what is the probability that they will both be green

Answer #1

Total number of blocks = 4 + 6 + 7 = 17

number of green blocks = 7

Number of ways to pick first green block = 7 because there are 7 green block

So, favourable outcome = 7 and total outcome = 17

Thus, probability of picking first green block = 7/17

Similarly, Number of ways to pick second green block = 6 because one green block is picked and only 6 left

So, favourable outcome = 6 and total outcome = 16(becuase one green block is already picked, now remaining only 16 block)

Thus, probability of picking second green block = 6/16

So, total probability = probability of picking first green block * probability of picking second green block

setting the values, we get

**total probability = (7/17)*(6/16) = 42/272 or 21/136
or 0.1544 (rounded to 4 decimals)**

A bag contains 10 white, 12 blue, 13 red, 7 yellow, and 8 green
wooded balls. A ball is selected from the bag, its color noted,
then replaced. You then draw a second ball, note its color and then
replace the ball. What is the probability of selecting 2 white
balls? Round to the nearest ten-thousandth.

A bag contains red balls and white balls. If five balls
are to be pulled from the bag, with replacement, the probability of
getting exactly three red balls is 32 times the probability of
getting exactly one red ball. What percent of the balls originally
in the bag are red?
