Starting this time maybe I should update on the discussion questions the national exam, because the national examination (UN) High School only a few months away. Come and join to be a member on this blog.
Problem this week:
In a box of there are 7 red and 5 white marbles. Three marbles was taken from a box with random. The opportunities/odds of least 1 white marbles taken from a box is ….
Get this answer ?
The discussion about the chances for above:
Total marbles =12. Taken 3, it means that the sample space is 12C3.
We can conclude that at least 1 white means: 2 white 1 red, 1 white 2 red and 3 white (all white). So the odds: the number of possibilities / sample space.
Odds = (5C1.7C2 +5 C2.7C1 +5 C3.7C0) / 12C3
Why 5C1.7C2 ? It taken 3 balls, 1 white, 2 red. Total’s 5 white ball, red ball trus’s total 7.
I hope, you can count it self to get the result.
C is a combination. For those who forgot, please check again notes. Obviously not clearly yes please give comments on this blog.
