Two flower seeds are randomly selected from a package that contains five seeds for red flowers and three seeds for white flowers.

a.) What is the probability that both seeds will result in red flowers?

b.) What is the probability that one of each color is selected?

c.) What is the probability that both seeds are for white flowers?

  • statistics -

    a) first one : prob = (5/8)(4/7) = 5/14

    b) could be RW or WR,
    so (5/8)(3/7) + (3/8)(5/7) = 2(15/56) = 15/28

    c) let me know what you get for this one.
