1. What is the probability of obtaining exactly one head?

A bag contains five balls numbered 0 through 4. Two balls are chosen at random in succession. The first ball is replaced before the second is chosen.

Balls

1. In 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4, only 1 and 3 are odd.

2. Same info.

3. If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

4. 0, 2 and 4 are not odd. Use rule from #3.
