Jason has two bags with 6 tiles each. The tiles in each bag are shown below: Six 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 5 from the first bag and an odd tile from the second bag? 3 over 6 4 over 6 3 over 36 4 over 36

what is the probability he draws a 5 from bag one?

um 2

??

where on earth did you get that from? a probability is a number between zero and one it can never be 2 lets go slow
anonymous
  • anonymous
how many tiles are in the bag?
anonymous
  • anonymous
because i dont get it :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is clear, so lets take it one step at a time how many tiles are in bag one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
6 tiles are in each bag
anonymous
  • anonymous
6 tiles in bag one out of those six, how many are labelled "5"?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3
anonymous
  • anonymous
there are 3 tiles labelled "5" in bag one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
seems unlikely, since the question says "Six squares are numbered sequentially from 1 to 6. "

yeah i get the picture the question is "how many tiles are labelled "5"?" this is not a trick question
anonymous
  • anonymous
theres only 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
whew!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
1 right, not 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
right
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so there is 1 labelled 5, and 6 all together what is the probability you pick the 5?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
guess my words above did not help a probability is a number between zero and one, it is never two it is the ration of the number of fives to the total number of tiles, i.e one out of six or as a fraction \[\huge \frac{1}{6}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
we are not done yet though
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok whats next
anonymous
  • anonymous
how many odd tiles are in the second bag?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3
anonymous
  • anonymous
right! and there are 6 tiles in the bag yes?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok now please to not say "2" what is the probability that you pick an odd tile out of the second bag
anonymous
  • anonymous
3
anonymous
  • anonymous
repeat after me a probability cannot be larger than 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
how many odd tiles?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3
anonymous
  • anonymous
how many tiles total?
anonymous
  • anonymous
6
anonymous
  • anonymous
ratio of the number of odd tiles to total number of tiles?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
how many odd tiles?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{\text{number of odd tiles}}{\text{total number of tiles}}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
3 so 3/6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yay!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok one more step
anonymous
  • anonymous
you want the probability of both of those, first is a 5 AND second is odd we have the probability of each probability of first one is \(\frac{1}{6}\) probability of second one is \(\frac{3}{6}\) take the numbers and multiply them i.e. \[\frac{1}{6}\times \frac{3}{6}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
is3/6
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is not how you multiply fractions is it? multiply means multiply top and bottom
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer is \[\frac{ 3 }{6 }\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{1}{6}\times \frac{3}{6}=\frac{1\times 3}{6\times 6}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh sorry 3/12
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[6\times 6=?\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
12
anonymous
  • anonymous
no \(2\times 6=12\) but \(6\times 6\neq 12\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
36
anonymous
  • anonymous
whew that is much better so now what is \[\frac{1}{6}\times \frac{3}{6}\]?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3/36 :) can you help me with more please? ill tag you !
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes got it on planet earth we call that \[\frac{1}{12}\] but that is not one of your answer choices, so go witih \(\frac{3}{36}\)
