At a game booth, a student gets a box of candy as the prize for winning a game. The boxes come in four colors: white, red, green, and blue. There are 6 boxes of each color. All the boxes are equally likely to be given away as prizes. Which expression shows the probability of the first winner receiving a white box and the second winner also receiving a box of the same color? 6 over 24 multiplied by 6 over 23 6 over 24 multiplied by 5 over 23 6 over 24 plus 5 over 23 6 over 24 plus 6 over 23

probability of getting a white box for first winner = 6/24 for the second player there are now 5 white boxes and total of 23 boxes so what is probability of second player getting a white bos?

hwo do i do that? im confused
welshfella
  • welshfella
well for 6 and 24 the answer was 6/24 so for 5 and 23 it will be ?

  • welshfella
cant you see the pattern here?
welshfella
  • welshfella
probability = number of white boxes / total number of boxes
welshfella
  • welshfella
number of white boxes = 5 , total number of boxes = 23

I cant put it plainer than that
welshfella
  • welshfella
just plug those numbers into the formula for the probability

yes but they want it as a fraction 5/23
welshfella
  • welshfella
now as the 2 events are independent you multiply the 2 probabilities require probability = 6/24 * 5/23

you are talking about the candy question right?

its number 2 6/24 times 5/23 the reason this is the answer is because on the first pick there are 4 colors and each color has 6 boxes each 6*4=24 however after the first white box is taken there are only 23 boxes left in total leaving only 5 white boxes left since one white box was removed from the booth.so the new chance of picking a white box would be 5/23.the chance of picking two white boxes in a row would be calculated by multiplying the chance of picking the white box the first time and the new chance of picking the white box the second time.so the chance of picking two white boxes in a row would be 30/552 without simplifying.from there I think you can do the rest.
