A drawer contains 8 red socks, 4 white socks, and 2 blue socks. Without looking, you draw out a sock,
return it, and draw out a second sock. What is the probability that the first sock is white and the second
sock is blue?

  • Simple Math -

    prob(white, then blue) , sock is returned after draw
    = (4/14)(2/14)
    = 2/49

    if the first sock in not returned it would be
    (4/14)(2/13) , just thought I would include that thought.
