Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5the probability that Teesha will be picked as a guide means Teesha will be picked on 1st selection AND Teesha will be picked on 2nd selection got this ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5i would like to revise my previous statement, the probability that Teesha will be picked as a guide means Teesha will be picked on 1st selection and NOT in 2nd(because she's already selected), AND Teesha will be picked on 2nd selection and NOT in 1st.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oooooh, so what happens then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5so, we'll consider 1st case, Teesha will be picked on 1st selection and NOT in 2nd(because she's already selected), 1st selection, teacher has 31 choices, to select teesha, she has 1 option, so, 1/31 2nd selection, teacher now have 30 other choices, and to NOT select teesha, she can pick any of 30 other, so 30/30 so, overall for 1st case, it'll be 1/31 *30/30 got this ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.52nd case, Teesha will be picked on 2nd selection and NOT in 1st., 1st selection, teacher has 31 choices, to NOT select teesha, she has 30 other options, so, 30/31 2nd selection, teacher now have 30 other choices, and to select teesha, she have to pick her, so 1/30 so, overall for 1st case, it'll be 30/31*1/30 = 1/31 got this ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5since the 2 cases are independent, you'll add them, 1/31 + 1/31 = 2/31

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 2/31 * 1/31 would = 2/31 as the answer? Lol, or am I too early?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.51/31 + 1/31 = 2/31 thats why 2/31 is the answer as we considered both the cases.
