Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose you have a box with a red and b green balls. you grab k balls the prob you get r red and g green balls (r+g=k) is given by \[\frac{ _aC_r _bC_g}{_{(a+b)}C_k}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it would be easier if we dont use combinations, zarkon.. it would be easier if if we do it like this.. for 1 green ball. 4/16.. 1 blue ball after 1 green ball hass been selected.. 7/15. and then multiply them.. whats your view?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i knwo thats what this unit is called combinations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0eh right. so it would be like 4/16*7/15 + 7/16*4/15.. right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait but youd get the same thing right 7/60 + 7/60

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then for the second part.. 5/16*4/15.. you get why?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which would equal 14/60 right because you dont change the denominator right or would it be 14/120

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2P(blue first, then green) = P(blue) x P(green after drawing a blue) = 7/16 x 4/(161) = a P(green first, then blue) = P(green) x P(blue after drawing a green) = 4/16 x 7/(161) = b P(1 blue and 1 green) =P(blue first, then green) + P(green first, then blue) = a + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22 red, similar, despite the order of picking a red doesn't matter this time, since you don't the red ones are identical
