Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since there is replacement, the total no. of socks in the drawer does not change, therefore: The probability of pulling a patterned sock on after the replacement= no. of patterned socks/total no. of socks = 5/30 = 1/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well first of all there are 25 socks total/ Considering there are 8 blue socks you have a 8/25 chance of getting a blue sock and because you replace that sock there are still 25 socks and the odds of getting a patterned sock is 5/25. so we just multiply the two together 8/25 * 5/25 = 40/625 simplify to 8/125. I pretty sure that's the answer it's been awhile since I have done this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok it's 8 blue socks and 5 pattern socks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if it is 8/30 probability for blue socks and 5/30 for patterned socks, multiply 8/30 by 5/30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The probability for picking blue and replacing it would be 13/30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why would it be 2/45

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because 8/30*5/30=2/45

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this case, the independent event probabilities are 8/30 and 5/30
