Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Probability one is red of the first draw is 4/7 Probability one is white of the 2nd draw is 3/6 =1/2 multiply of both up, we get 4/7 * 1/2 = 4/14 = 2/7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we found the probability 2/7 when first red and second white so P[RW] = 2/7 this is one case another possibility is that first is white and second is red P[WR] = 3/7 * 4/6 = 2/7 so total probability of this event = p[WR]+p[RW]
