Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a) with replacement: P(3 red) = P(1st red). P(2nd red). P(3rd red)=(7/10)(7/10)(7/10)=343/1000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0these are the answers I got I just wanted to get them checked and see if they are right? a) with 343/128 without 21/132 b)125/1728 without 60/132 c) I did not know how to do this one D) with 175/1728 without 14/132

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, I had to go. In part (c), we want to get one red and two black marbles. There are three possibilities for this, red comes first, second or last. if R denotes red marbles and B denotes black marbles, then: i) with replacement: P(one red and two black)=P(R B B)+P(B R B)+P(B B R) =(7/12)(5/12)(5/12)+(5/12)(7/12)(5/12)+(5/12)(5/12)(7/12) =3(7/12)(7/12)(5/12)= (use a calculator).
