(a) What is the total number of possible outcomes?
(b) What is the probability that the pair of socks selected is grey?
(c) What is the probability that the pair of socks selected is blue?
(d) What is the probability that the pair of socks selected is neither grey nor blue?

    a) 3 outcomes:
    GG , GB, BB

    b) 3 G, and 4B
    prob (GG) = (3/7)(2/6) = 1/7

    c) prob (BB) = ((4/7)(3/6) = 2/7

    d) prob(not both blue or grey)
    = prob (BG) + prob(GB)
    = (4/7)(3/6) + (3/7)(4/6)
    = 2/7 + 2/7 = 4/7

    or we could have taken
    1 - (1/7+2/7) = 4/7
