Question

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.

Answer #1

**Answer:**

Given,

Green marbles = 8

Blue marbles = 6

Red marbles = 3

Total marbles = 8 + 6 + 3

= 17

Probability that the first ball is green = Number of green balls / Total balls

= 8 / 17

Probability of getting second ball is green = 7 / 16

Probability of getting third ball is green = 6 / 15

So now probability that all three marbles selected are green = Probability that the first ball is green * Probability of getting second ball is green * Probability of getting third ball is green

= 8/17 * 7/16 * 6/15

= 0.471*0.4375*0.4

= 0.0824

Required probability = 0.0824

A jar contains 5 red, 9 blue, and 6 green marbles. You randomly
select three marbles from the jar, without replacement.
1. Find the probability of selecting three blue marbles.
2. Find the probability of selecting a marble of each color.
3. Would it be more appropriate to use combinations or permutations
to solve this problem?

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.

A jar contains 6 red marbles, 9 green marbles, and 3 blue
marbles. Suppose you draw three marbles, without replacement.
A) Draw a probability tree to represent this experiment.
B) What is the probability that you draw a red marble?
C) What is the probability that you draw 3 green marbles in a
row?
D) What is the probability that you draw one of each color?

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...

(a) A box contains 4 marbles, 2 Red, 1 Green, 1
Blue. Consider an experiment that consists of taking 1 marble from
the box, then replacing it in the box and drawing a second marble
from the box. Describe the sample space. repeat when the second
marble is drawn without first replacing the first marble.
(b) What is the probability that the first
marble was Green and the second was Blue with replacement?
(c) What is the probability that the...

A bag contains 3 red marbles, 5 blue marbles, 8 yellow marbles,
and 7 green marbles. What is the probability of choosing a yellow
or green marble when one marble is drawn?

A bag contains 3 red marbles, 5 blue marbles, 8 yellow marbles,
and 7 green marbles. What is the probability of choosing a yellow
or green marble when one marble is drawn?

A jar contains 6 red marbles, 8 green marbles, and 9 blue
marbles?
What is the probability that you choose exactly one of each
color, if you pick 3 from the jar?
I am stumped. It is not 6/23*8/23*9/23. So good luck and thank
you

An urn contains 4 marbles, either blue or green. The number of
blue marbles is equally likely to be 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4. Suppose we
do 3 random draws with replacement, and the observed sequence is:
blue, green, blue. What is the probability the urn contains just 1
blue marble?
(Round your answer to three decimal
places. Example: if the true answer is 2/3, you
should enter 0.667.)
