i got 0.5714...

7. Vocaloid

* means multiply....

8. anonymous

Maggie has 7 tiles with pictures of plants and 2 tiles with pictures of animals. Maggie keeps all the tiles on a mat with the pictures hidden and mixes them up. She then turns one tile face up and finds the picture of a plant on it. She removes this tile from the mat and turns over another tile without looking. What is the probability that the second tile that Maggie turns over has a plant on it? 22.2% 28.6% 65.0% 75.0%

14. Vocaloid

well, we start off with 7 pictures of plants and 9 total tiles after she takes one plant away we have 6 plants and 8 total tiles so the probability of picking a plant = # of plants/# of total tiles = ?

Jason has two bags with 6 tiles each. The tiles in each bag are shown below: Make 6 squares. The squares are numbered sequentially from 1 to 6. Without looking, Jason draws a tile from the first bag and then a tile from the second bag. What is the probability of Jason drawing the tile numbered 2 from the first bag and the tile numbered 3 from the second bag? 1 over 36 1 over 12 2 over 12 2 over 6
