Question

Urn A contains 5 green and 4 red balls, and Urn B contains 3 green and 6 red balls. One ball is drawn from Urn A and transferred to Urn B. Then one ball is drawn from Urn B and transferred to Urn A. Let X = the number of green balls in Urn A after this process. List the possible values for X and then find the entire probability distribution for X.

Answer #1

Solution:

Case 1: transfer a green ball from A to B and then transfer a green from B to A . then X= 5

P(case1) = 5/9 * 4/10 * 5/9= 0.12

Case 2: transfer a green ball from A to B and then transfer a Red from B to A . then X= 4

P(case 2) = 5/9 * 6/10 * 4/9 = 0.15

Case 3 : transfer a red ball from A to B and then transfer a red from B to A . then X= 5

P( case 3) = 4/9 * 7/10 * 5/9 = 0.17

Case 4: transfer a red ball from A to B and then transfer a green from B to A . then X= 6

P(case 4) = 4/9 * 3/10 * 6/9 = 0.09

So probability distribution

4 | 0.15 |

5 | 0.12 + 0.17= 0.29 |

6 | 0.09 |

Urn A contains 5 green and 3 red balls, and Urn B contains 2
green and 6 red balls. One ball is drawn from Urn A and transferred
to Urn B. Then one ball is drawn from Urn B and transferred to Urn
A. Let X = the number of green balls in Urn A after this process.
List the possible values for X and then find the entire probability
distribution for X.

Urn A contains 6 green and 4 red balls, and Urn B contains 3
green and 7 red balls. One ball is drawn from Urn A and transferred
to Urn B. Then one ball is drawn from Urn B and transferred to Urn
A. Let X = the number of green balls in Urn A after this process.
List the possible values for X and then find the entire probability
distribution for X.

2. Urn A contains 6 green and 4 red balls, and Urn B contains 3
green and 7 red balls. One ball is drawn from Urn A and transferred
to Urn B. Then one ball is drawn from Urn B and transferred to Urn
A. Let X = the number of green balls in Urn A after this process.
List the possible values for X and then find the entire probability
distribution for X.

Urn A has 8 Red balls and 5 Green balls while Urn B has 1 Red
ball and 3 Green balls.
A fair die is tossed. If a “5” or a “6” are rolled, a ball is drawn
from Urn A. Otherwise, a ball is drawn from Urn B.
(a) Determine the conditional probability that the chosen ball is
Red given that Urn A is selected?
(b) Determine the conditional probability that the chosen ball is
Red and Urn B...

Urn 1 contains 7 red balls and 3 black balls. Urn 2 contains 4
red balls and 1 black ball. Urn 3 contains 4 red balls and 3 black
balls. If an urn is selected at random and a ball is drawn, find
the probability that it will be red.

An urn contains 10 balls, 2 red, 5 blue, and 3 green balls. Take
out 3 balls at a random,
without replacement. You win $2 for each green ball you select and
lose $3 for each red ball you
select. Let the random variable X denote the amount you win,
determine the probability mass
function of X.

An urn contains 3 white balls and 7 red balls. A second urn
contains 7 white balls and 3 red balls. An urn is selected, and the
probability of selecting the first urn is 0.2. A ball is drawn from
the selected urn and replaced. Then another ball is drawn and
replaced from the same urn. If both balls are white, what are the
following probabilities? (Round your answers to three decimal
places.)
(a) the probability that the urn selected...

An urn contains 1 white, 2 black, 3 red, and 4 green balls. If 6
balls are selected randomly (without replacement) and X represents
the number of selections that are either red or green, find: (a)
the probability mass function for X. (b) the expected value of X
(calculate this value directly by using the probability mass
function from part a).

Urn 1 contains 4 red balls and 3 black balls. Urn 2 contains 1
red ball and 3 black balls. Urn 3 contains 4 red balls and 2
black balls. If an urn is selected at random and a ball is
drawn, find the probability that it will be red.
Enter your answer as a fraction in simplest form or a decimal
rounded to 3 decimal places.
P(red)=

Suppose that:
Urn U1 contains 3 blue balls and six red balls, and
Urn U2 contains 5 blue ball and 4 red balls
Suppose we draw one ball at random from each urn. If the two
balls drawn have different colors, what is the probability that the
blue ball came from urn U1?
