Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0didn't say anything about replacement so I think without

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if it is without...then your pmf is not correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if it is replacement then you pick a ball...look at it ..put it back then randomly sample again with all 14 balls

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think ,from the wording; we are pulling two balls out at the same time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you need to redo your pmf

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you get black balls then you get $2 each correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(4/14)(2/13) or (2/14)(4/13) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there are 8 blacks...i see no 8's in your solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.24 black...so prob of BB is \[\frac{4}{14}\cdot\frac{3}{13}\]

Zarkon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so \[P(X=4)=\frac{4}{14}\cdot\frac{3}{13}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right , so for $2 (4/14)(2/13) or (2/14)(4/13) (4/14)(2/13)+(2/14)(4/13)=
