Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find the probability of selecting a blue pencil first. Then the probability of selecting a red pencil. For the second selection, there's one less in the bag, so the denominator will be decreased by 1. Multiply the individual probabilities to get the final \[P(blue~1st,~red~2nd)=\frac{ no.~of ~blue~pencils }{ total~no.~of~pencils } \times \frac{ no.~of~red~pencils }{ total~no.~of~pencils1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the denominator is 127 but decreased makes 126 right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 24 / 46 simplify right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.024/46 will be the probability for the 2nd selection. You don't really have to simplify it because they want a percent. You still need the probability for the 1st selection. P = blue/original total

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what's happening is she's selecting a blue pencil first when there are 47 pencils in the bag and 15 of them are blue. So the probability is 15/47. Then she's selecting a red pencil, but now there are only 46 in the bag and 24 of them are red. This probability is 24/46. To find the probability of doing both, you have to multiply the individual probabilities. \[P(blue~then~red)=\frac{ 15 }{ 47 }\times \frac{ 24 }{ 46 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know. You should have gotten a decimal. try it this way \[\frac{ 15*24 }{ 46*47 }\] Multiply the 15 and 24. Then multiply 46 and 47. Post the fraction you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then just divide that to get the decimal. Multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why i get this long number

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because it's a really ugly fraction and the numbers just don't divide nicely. That's why they said round it to the nearest 10th
