A jar contains 3 pink balls, 6 blue balls, and 3 red balls.

Event A = drawing a red ball on the first draw
Event B = drawing a pink ball on the second draw

If two balls are drawn from the jar, one after the other without replacement, what is P(A and B) expressed in simplest form

  • math -

    3/12 = ?

    Since on red ball is already gone,

    3/11 = ?

    The probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
