**Graham**, Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 4:56amThe probabilities of colors of each pill are independent.

Let m[n] = C, be the event that the [n]th pill is a color (C). eg: P(m1=Blue) = 0.12

(1)

P(m1=Blue and m2=Blue) = P(m1=Blue) P(m2=Blue)

(2)

P(m1<>Red and m2<>Red) =

(1-P(m1=Red))(1-P(m2=Red))

(3)

P(m1=Red or m2=Red) = P(m1=Red) + P(m2=Red) - P(m1=Red) P(m2=Red)
