Okay - this is the first time I've ever tried to use Bayes Theorem... P(A|B) = P(B|A).P(A) / Sum(P(B|Aj).P(Aj) Let A be the event "All five balls are white". Let Aj be the event "There are exactly j white balls". Let B be the event "I draw two white balls". Then P(A|B) = P(All...

Conditional Probability
A box contains 1 green ball, 2 blue balls, and 3 red balls. These balls are selected at random, one after another without replacement, and their colors are noted. Find the conditional probability that the third ball is red given exactly one ball is red.

combination,Math
This amounts to coloring 9 balls with 4 colors. We can represent a coloring as a string of 9 o's and 3 |'s. E.g. 000|00|000|0 represents 3 balls with color 1, 2 balls with color 2, 3 balls with color 3 and 1 ball with color 4. The number of different strings you can make is: ...

math
For this problem, assume the balls in the box are numbered 1 through 9, and that an experiment consists of randomly selecting 3 balls one after another without replacement. What probability should be assigned to the event that at least one ball has an odd number?
