What you are being asked is what is the probability of getting 3 and 5 or two 4s on the next roll. On the second problem, the probability of getting a 3 is 1/6 and "anything else" is 1. With the information below, you should be able to calculate the probability of a ...

1. You are concerned with not matching the first toss, no matter what it is and not matching the second toss either (5/6*4/6). 2. Again the first toss can be any number. For two the same, you need one the same and one different (1/6*5/6). From that, you should be able to ...

Statistics
Try using the binomial probability formula or the binomial probability table. Using a binomial probability table is much easier. For a): n = 20; x = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; p = .20 When you find the probabilities for each x, add all of them together for your total probability. ...

Add the probabilities that 0, 1, 2 or 3 components have failed. That sum will be the probability that the machine works. The probability that none have failed is P(0) = 0.8^7 = 0.210 The probability that one part has failed is P(1) = 0.8^6*0.2*7 = 0.367 The probability that ...

There are 150 odd balls and 150 even balls, the probability is the sum over the probabilities to draw k balls for k = 21 to 41. The equal number of even and odd balls implies that the probability that the number of even balls is larger is the same. Because there is no draw ...

The probabilities for drawing a red ball from a particular bag are: P(red|bag1) = 3/5 P(red|bag2) = 5/9 The conditional probability that a variable X takes some value given that another variable Y takes some value, denoted as P(X|Y) is related to the joint probability as ...
