Question

A box contains 3 red and 6 green marbles. If 8 marbles are drawn
without replacement, what is the expected number of red
marbles?

HINT: Let X be the number of red marbles drawn. First find the
Range and p.m.f. of X and use Wolfram-Alpha to simplify the
fractions.

12) A box contains 8 green marbles, 6 blue marbles, and 3 red
marbles. Three marbles are selected at random from the box, one at
a time, without replacement. Find the probability that all three
marbles selected are green. Round your answer to four decimal
places.

Two marbles are drawn without replacement from a box with 3
white, 2 green, 2 red, and 1 blue marble. Find the probability that
both marbles are white.

Suppose that a drawer contains 8 marbles: 2 are red, 2 are blue,
2 are green, and 2 are yellow. The marbles are rolling around in a
drawer, so that all possibilities are equally likely when they are
drawn. Alice chooses 2 marbles without replacement, and then Bob
also chooses 2 marbles without replacement. Let Y denote the number
of red marbles that Alice gets, and let X denote the number of red
marbles that Bob gets.

An urn contains ten marbles, of which 4 are green, 3 are blue,
and 3 are red. Three marbles are to be drawn from the urn, one at a
time without replacement.
(a) Let ?? be the event that the ?th marble drawn is green. Find
?(?1 ∩ ?2 ∩ ?3), which is the probability that all three marbles
drawn are green. Hint: Use the Multiplicative Law of
Probability
(b) Now let ?? be the random variable defined to be...

One box contains 5 red and 6 blue marbles. A second box contains
10 red and 5 blue marbles. One marble is drawn from the first box
and placed into the second box. After that, 3 marbles are drawn
from the second box without replacement. What is the
expected number of red marbles obtained on the second draw (from
the second box)?

Suppose that a drawer contains 8 marbles: 2 are red, 2 are blue,
2 are green, and 2 are yellow. The marbles are rolling around in a
drawer, so that all possibilities are equally likely when they are
drawn. Alice selects marbles (without replacement) until she gets a
red marble, and then she stops afterwards. Let X denote the number
of draws that are needed until the first red appears.
