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 A contains two red balls and eight blue balls. Urn B
contains two red balls and ten green balls. Six balls are drawn
from urn A and four are drawn from urn B; in each case, each ball
is replaced before the next one is drawn. What is the most likely
number of blue balls to be drawn? What is the most likely number of
green balls to be drawn?

An urn contains 4 red balls and 6 green balls. Three balls are
chosen randomly from the urn, without replacement. (a) What is the
probability that all three balls are red? (Round your answer to
four decimal places.) (b) Suppose that you win $50 for each red
ball drawn and you lose $25 for each green ball drawn. Compute the
expected value of your winnings.

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.

A bowl contains 5 blue, 4 red, and 3 green balls. Balls are
drawn from it one at a time without replacement until 2 red balls
are drawn. Let X = the number of blue balls that were drawn. Find
E(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...
