Homework Help: Statistics

Posted by John on Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at 5:32pm.

I'm looking at my notes and I can't seem to figure how my teacher did this problem. She used her name which has 9 letters, 3 vowels, and 6 consonants. If we were to reach in the bag and grab 3 letters out. By using the probability distribution what's the probability of getting 0, 1, 2, and 3 vowels. I know how to do the probability of 0 vowel. For 1 vowel she did (3/9*6/8*5/7)3 how did she get 6/8 and 5/7. For 2 vowels she did (3/9*2/8*6/7)3 same here where did the 2/8 and 6/7 come from. Then for 3 vowels she had 1 minus everything.
