**HM**, Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 3:59amhow is it going to be 76/88 ?

**drwls**, Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 7:17amIt isn't. For two draws, it is the square of that.

There are 76 good coils out of 88. What does that tell you about the probabiloity of selecting a good one at random each time?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 9:37amThere are a total of 100 coils, of which 88 are good

prob of getting 2 good ones in a row, after replacing the first

= (88/100)(88/100)

= (88/100)^2

= .7744

B- the first selection is not replaced.
