a. List a sample space for this experiment.

b. What is the probability that both balls are black?

c. What is the probability that both balls are gold?

d. Why doesn’t the sum of the probabilities in parts (b) and (c) total 1?

**PsyDAG**, Sunday, January 10, 2010 at 5:04pmI'm not sure what you mean by sample space.

However, the probability of a gold ball is 2/5 and the probability of a black ball is 3/5.

The probability of two or more events both occurring is found by multiplying the individual probabilities.

They don't total 1, because they don't include the probability of drawing black-gold or gold-black combinations.

I hope this helps.
