Question

You walk up to a vending machine that has a variety of flavored candy in it. If you give it money, it will randomly select a piece for you. 15 blue 10 red 18 orange 7 green

What is the Conditional Probability that you will get 1 piece of orange and one piece of green if both are replaced?

What is the conditional probability to get 3 pieces of blue if none are replaced?

Answer #1

Result:

You walk up to a vending machine that has a variety of flavored candy in it. If you give it money, it will randomly select a piece for you. 15 blue 10 red 18 orange 7 green

What is the Conditional Probability that you will get 1 piece of orange and one piece of green if both are replaced?

Total candies= 15+10+18+7=50

P( orange, then green) = (18/50)*(7/50)

=0.0504

What is the conditional probability to get 3 pieces of blue if none are replaced?

P( blue, then blue, then blue) = (15/50)*(14/49)*(13/48)

=0.023214

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...

Recall the pre-lab candy situation consider: two unopened bags
of candy (one Skittles the other M&M's). The manufacturers
state the distribution of coloured candies is:
M&M'S MILK CHOCOLATE: 24% blue, 19% orange, 16% green, 13%
yellow, 13% red, 15% brown.
SKITTLES: colours are reportedly distributed evenly, meaning each
colour (red, orange, green, blue, yellow, and purple) has a
probability of 1616.
Assume that both of these unopened bags have the same number of
candies. If they are opened and mixed,...

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.

In a bag of M & M's, there are 80 M & Ms, with 11 red
ones, 12 orange ones, 20 blue ones, 10 green ones, 18 yellow ones,
and 9 brown ones. They are mixed up so that each candy piece is
equally likely to be selected if we pick one.

A snack has 12 pieces of candy, 1 b, 1 y, 3 g, 2 r, 2 o, 3 br. A
person pours the candies randomly on their plate, in line. (a)

people where to complete the same random pour task, what is the
expected number of people whole have all their colors togethers in
line?

According to Masterfoods, the company that manufactures
M&M’s, 12% of peanut M&M’s are brown, 15% are yellow, 12%
are red, 23% are blue, 23% are orange and 15% are green. (Round all
answers to 3 places after the decimal point, if necessary.) (a)
Compute the probability that a randomly selected peanut M&M is
not brown. P(not brown) = (b) Compute the probability that a
randomly selected peanut M&M is blue or red. P(blue or red) =
(c) Compute the probability...

In
a sock drawer, you have a pair of blue socks, red socks, yellow
socks, orange socks, purple socks and green socks. You randomly
pull out a sock one at a time until you select a pair of matching
socks.
Let pr be the probability that you get your first matching
pair on the r’th sock pulled from the drawer.
Find pr for r = 2, 3, . . ..

M&M's Color Distribution: Suppose the
makers of M&M candies give the following average percentages
for the mix of colors in their bags of plain chocolate
M&M's.
Stated Distribution of Colors
Brown
Yellow
Red
Orange
Green
Blue
Percent
30%
20%
20%
10%
10%
10%
Now, you randomly select 200 M&M's and get the counts given
in the table below. You expected about 20 blues but only got 9. You
suspect that the maker's claim is not true.
Observed Counts by Color...
