    b) asked for pmf P_x (8/14)^2 x=-2 (4/14)*(8/14) x=1 (4/14)^2 x=2

    didn't say anything about replacement so I think without

    if it is without...then your pmf is not correct

    what is it mean by "replacement"?

    if it is replacement then you pick a ball...look at it ..put it back then randomly sample again with all 14 balls

    I think ,from the wording; we are pulling two balls out at the same time

    that is what I am thinking

    so you need to redo your pmf

    if you get black balls then you get $2 each correct

    yes

  18. Zarkon

    so one possibility is that you win $4

    so X can take the values 4,2,1,0,-1,-2

    (4/14)(2/13) or (2/14)(4/13) ?

    winning $2 is BO or OB

    there are 8 blacks...i see no 8's in your solution

    lol.....there are 8 W

  32. Zarkon

    4 black...so prob of BB is \[\frac{4}{14}\cdot\frac{3}{13}\]

  33. Zarkon
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    not what you had above

  34. Zarkon
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 2

    so \[P(X=4)=\frac{4}{14}\cdot\frac{3}{13}\]

  35. Libniz

    right , so for $2 (4/14)(2/13) or (2/14)(4/13) (4/14)(2/13)+(2/14)(4/13)=

  36. Zarkon
    • 2 years ago

    yes
