Question

An urn contains 9 red balls, 7 blue balls and 6 green balls. A ball is selected and its color is noted then it is placed back to the urn. A second ball is selected and its color is noted. Find the probability that the color of one of the balls is red and the color of the other ball is blue.

A. 0.2603

B. 0.2727

C. 0.4091

D. 0.3430

Answer #1

**Ans: A) 0.2603**

Note that here the selected ball is placed back into the urn so we have to deal with WITH REPLACEMENT problem.

Whlie working with replacement ,we have to use multinomial distribution.

The size of the sample space is

.

Let X1 and X2 denote the number of red and blue balls selected, respectively.

The Multinomial Theorem is given as

Puting the values we have

**P(X1 = X2 = 1 ) =**

= 0.2603306

Hence option A) 0.2603.

An urn contains 7 red balls, 18 blue balls and 15
green balls. A ball is selected and its color is noted and then it
is placed back to the urn. A second ball is selected and its color
is noted. Find the probability of that both balls has the same
color.
A. 0.1575
B. 0.3738
C. 0.3750
D. 0.1750

An urn contains 6 green ball, 7 blue balls and 5 yellow balls.
You are asked to draw 3 balls, one at a time (without replacement).
Find the probability that a green is pulled first, then another
green ball then a blue ball.

An urn contains five blue, six green and seven red balls. You
choose five balls at random from the urn, without replacement (so
you do not put a ball back in the urn after you pick it), what is
the probability that you chose at least one ball of each
color?(Hint: Consider the events: B, G, and R, denoting
respectively that there are no blue, no green and no red balls
chosen.)

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.

Two balls are selected with replacement from an urn containing 7
red and 3 blue balls a. What is the probability that both balls are
red? b. What is the probability that both balls are blue? c. What
is the probability that the first ball is red and the second is
ball is blue? d. What is the probability that the first ball is
blue and the second ball is red? e. What is the probability that
the two balls...

A bag contains 10 white, 12 blue, 13 red, 7 yellow, and 8 green
wooded balls. A ball is selected from the bag, its color noted,
then replaced. You then draw a second ball, note its color and then
replace the ball. What is the probability of selecting 2 white
balls? Round to the nearest ten-thousandth.

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...

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.
