Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Jason 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the probability he draws a 5 from bag one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where on earth did you get that from? a probability is a number between zero and one it can never be 2 lets go slow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is clear, so lets take it one step at a time how many tiles are in bag one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06 tiles in bag one out of those six, how many are labelled "5"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are 3 tiles labelled "5" in bag one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0seems unlikely, since the question says "Six squares are numbered sequentially from 1 to 6. "

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i get the picture the question is "how many tiles are labelled "5"?" this is not a trick question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so there is 1 labelled 5, and 6 all together what is the probability you pick the 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0guess 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 \[\huge \frac{1}{6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right! and there are 6 tiles in the bag yes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now please to not say "2" what is the probability that you pick an odd tile out of the second bag

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0repeat after me a probability cannot be larger than 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how many tiles total?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ratio of the number of odd tiles to total number of tiles?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{\text{number of odd tiles}}{\text{total number of tiles}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you 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. \[\frac{1}{6}\times \frac{3}{6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is not how you multiply fractions is it? multiply means multiply top and bottom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer is \[\frac{ 3 }{6 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{1}{6}\times \frac{3}{6}=\frac{1\times 3}{6\times 6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no \(2\times 6=12\) but \(6\times 6\neq 12\)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0whew that is much better so now what is \[\frac{1}{6}\times \frac{3}{6}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03/36 :) can you help me with more please? ill tag you !

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes got it on planet earth we call that \[\frac{1}{12}\] but that is not one of your answer choices, so go witih \(\frac{3}{36}\)
