Assume that the box contains 11 balls: 4 red, 5 blue, and 2 yellow. As in the text, you draw one ball, note its color, and if it is yellow replace it. If it is not yellow you do not replace it. You then draw a second ball and note its color. (2) What is the probability that the second ball drawn is red?

there are 4 red balls and 22 balls in total the chance you are in case 1 is 4/22 change you are in case 2 is 18/22 when you are in case 1 you have a 3/21 chance of picking up a red ball the 2nd time when you are in case 2 you have a 4/21 chance of picking up a red ball the 2nd time Total prob of picking up a red is therefore 4/22*3/21 + 18/22*4/21

(2) There is a 2/11 probability of the first ball being yellow, in which case there would be a 4/11probability of the second ball being red. There is a 4/11 probability of the first ball being red, in which case there is a 3/10 chance of the second ball being red. There is a 5/11 probability of the first ball being blue, in which case there is a 4/10 probability of the second ball being red. So the probability that the second ball drawn is red is (2/11)(4/11) + (4/11)(3/10) + (5/11)(4/10) =
