2.

What is the probability that the value of neither bill is even?

3.

What is the probability that the value of exactly one of the bills is even?

4.

What is the probability that the value of at least one of the bills is even?

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

1. $10 and $20 are even. The chances at each drawing are 1/2.

2. $1 and $5 are odd. The chances at each drawing are 1/2.

3. Same.

4. P(1 or 2 bills even). Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.

5. see #1
