**economyst**, Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 10:26pmThere are 20 balls, this is the denominator for a and b

a) there are 5 red even balls, prob=5/20

b) there are 15 red or even balls, prob=15/20

c) there are 20-choose-2 ways to choose 2 balls = 20!/2!*(20-2)! = 19*20/2 ways. This will be the denominator in c

Number of ways to choose 2 green are 10-choose-2. This is the numerator.

d) probability that the first is red AND the second is green is P=(10/20)*(10/19). So d is (1-P)

e) Probability both are even is P=(10/20)*(9/19). so, e is (1-P)
