**PsyDAG**, Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 2:12pmI don't know how to draw a tree diagram on this message board. However, in a, remember that the number of balls is reduced after each pick.

a. R then W = 2/5*3/4 = .3

W then R = 3/5*2/4 = .3

The either-or probability = sum of individual probabilities.

b. R then W = 2/5*3/5 = 6/25

W then R = 3/5*2/5 = 6/25
