1. What is the probability of having exactly one class that gives homework?

Is this a nCx problem?

I got an illogical answer: 10.54=1054% THIS IS NOT RIGHT!!!!!!!

2. What is the probability of having homework in at least 1 class?

My answer : 0.492

could be 1 in math or 1 in history or 1 in Spanish

that is (math)(no history)(no Spanish) + ....

prob = .9(.4)(.25) + .6(.1)(.25) + .25(.1)(.4)

= .115

Exclude the case of no homework in any

which is (.1)(.4)(.25) = .01

prob(homework in at least 1 class) 1 - .01 = .99
