the 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 ?

i 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.

Oooooh, so what happens then?

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5
so, 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 ?

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5
1/31 + 30/31*1/30 = 2/31 how you got 30/930 ??

2nd 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 ?

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

So 2/31 * 1/31 would = 2/31 as the answer? Lol, or am I too early?

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5
1/31 + 1/31 = 2/31 thats why 2/31 is the answer as we considered both the cases.
