Question

Ten distinct balls are distributed among ten distinct
boxes

1.find the probability that only one of these ten boxes is
empty.

2.how would your answer change if the balls were indistinct while
the boxes are distinct

Answer #1

No. of ways in which ten distinct balls can be distributed among ten distinct boxes =

1) If only one of the ten boxes is empty, we need to distribute 10 balls among 9 boxes and one of these 9 boxes should contain 2 balls and the remaining 8 boxes should contain 1 ball each

9 boxes can be selected from 10 boxes in 10C9 = 10 ways

Now, any one of the 9 boxes(for 2 balls) can be selected in 9 ways

2 balls can be selected in 10C2 = 45 ways for the box containing 2 balls

The remaining 8 boxes can be filled with remaining 8 balls such that each of the boxes gets 1 ball each in 8! ways

Thus, total number of ways = 10*9*45*8! = 45 * 10!

So, the required probability = = 0.0163

2) If the balls are indistinct while the boxes are distinct, the 10 balls can be distributed among the ten boxes(without restriction) in

= 19C9

Now, 10 identical balls are to be distributed among 9 distinct boxes such that none of these 9 boxes are empty.

This can be done in = 9C8 = 9 ways

Thus, the required probability = =

Suppose 5 distinct balls are distributed into 3 distinct boxes
such that each of the 5 balls can get into any of the 3 boxes.
1) What is the Probability that box 1 has exactly two balls and
the remaining balls are in the other two boxes.
2) What is the probability that there is exactly one empty
box?

STAT Question :
We have 3 distinct balls (indexed Ball 1, Ball 2, Ball 3) and 3
distinct boxes (indexed Box 1, Box 2, and Box 3). Now randomly
assign each ball (independently of other balls) into one of the
boxes.
Fully simplify your final answer to each question into a
fraction or decimal.
Calculate the probability that no box is
empty.
Calculate the probability that ONLY Box 1 is
empty.

Probability question:
The number of ways to distribute 11 identical balls into 4
distinct boxes such that Box 1 has at most 3 balls and Box 2 has at
most 2 balls is?

We are given n distinct balls and m distinct boxes. m and n are
non-negative integers. Every ball must be placed into a box, but
not every box must have a ball in it. Each box can hold any number
of balls. Let's also assume that the order in which we put
the balls into the boxes does matter. (Ex: assume we have
2 balls, a and b, and 3 boxes, 1 2 and 3. two distinct
distributions would be...

9 different balls are distributed to 4 different boxes, where
each box can contain at most one ball. Empty boxes are allowed,
that it is possible that only one box has one ball, but the other
boxes don’t have any balls. Find the possible number of ways for
the distribution.

1. I have a pile of n identical ping-pong balls and two boxes,
labelled Box 1 and Box 2. How many different ways are there to
distribute the n balls into the two boxes? Explain why your answer
is correct.
2. How many ways are there to distribute n ping-pong balls among
k boxes?

Each of ten large barrels is filled with golf balls that all
look alike. The balls in nine of the barrels weigh 1 ounce and the
balls in one of the barrels weigh 2 ounces. With only one weighing
on a scale, how can you determine which barrel contains the heavy
golf balls?
Choose the correct answer below.
A. Weigh all of the balls from only one barrel to narrow down
the selection of barrels that may contain the heavier...

The amount of cereal dispensed into "16-ounce" boxes of
Captain Crisp cereal was normally distributed with mean
16.18 ounces and standard deviation 0.25 ounces.
a. What proportion of boxes are "underfilled"?
That is, what is the probability that the amount dispensed into a
box is less than 16 ounces? Give your answer to 4 decimal
places.
b. Find the probability that exactly 3 out of 9
randomly and independently selected boxes of cereal contain less
than 16 ounces. Give your...

Two containers hold several balls. Once a second, one of the
balls is chosen at random and switched to the other container.
After a long time has passed, you record the number of balls in
each container every second. In 10,000 s, you find 80 times when
all the balls were in one container (either one) and the other
container was empty. Part A How many balls are there? Express your
answer as an integer. Part B What is the...
