are mixed in a drawer. You pull out two socks, one at a

time, without looking.

a. Draw a tree diagram along with the possible outcomes

and the probabilities of each branch.

b. What is the probability of getting a pair of socks of

the same color?

c. What is the probability of getting two gray socks?

d. Suppose that, instead of pulling out two socks, you

pull out four socks. What is the probability now of

getting two socks of the same color?

Probability of each color = 4/12 = 1/3

b. First sock = 4/12, second sock = 3/11. Probability of events all occurring is found by multiplying individual probabilities. However, you want this for either blue, white or gray. Either-or probabilities found by adding individual probabilities.

c. First step in b above.

d. With my lack of time to respond, I'll let you do this one.
