how you got your answer.

• She will not look into the bag while picking the second tile.

c. What is the probability that Teresa will pick another tile with a vowel on it? Show or

explain how you got your answer.

**PsyDAG**, Friday, May 6, 2011 at 2:22pma. Assuming that these are the only tiles in the bag, there are six possibilities. The letter T is only one of these possibilities = 1/6

This should give you an idea of how to do b and c.
