replacement after each draw

C choosing and eating a piece of candy from a dish and then choosing another piece of candy

D Pulling a card from a deck when other players have already pulled several cards from that deck

apricot)? (1 point)

a 4/5
b 2/25
c 3/25
d 3/5 <---------------------



9. A coin is flipped three times. How the does P(H, H, H) compare to P(H, T, H)? (1 point)

A. P(H, H, H) is greater than P(H, T, H)
B.P(H, T, H) is greater than P(H, H, H). <-----------------
c.The probabilities are the same.
d.There is no way to tell with the information given.

10. A coin is tossed and a number cube is rolled. What is P(heads, a number less than 5)? (1 point)

A 1/3
B 5/12
C 2/3
D 5/6 <----------------------

am i correct.
Just to let you know, i am really bad at math:(

    Please explain how you got your choices.

  • PLEASE CHECK -

    1)20% chance of spinning each one
    2)= 40 40% *20=8
    3)since there are 4 outcomes, theoretical = 25% my changed answer is 25%.28+22+34+16= 100 100 / 4 = 25%
    4)my changed answer 3 15% of 20=3
    5)20=2 50=5 2*5=10 A
    6)24000 / 600 = 40
    7)self explanatory
    8)apple+apricot =6 10 all together 6/10=3/5
    9)since a coin flip is random,it is a higher probability of the outcome to be H T H or B
    10)since it says less than 5 and there is 6 sides on a dice all together, it is 5/6.

    PLEASE CHECK

    1)
    There are 4 colours, multiplied by 20% gives only 80%, where do the remaining 20% go?
    Experimental probability goes with the outcome of experiments. Think along those lines.

    2)
    40% is correct, as you said 40%*20=8, or working directly, 8÷20=40%.

    3)
    Theoretical is 25% (100/4).
    Experimental is what? Then choose a correct answer.

    4)
    15% of 20 = 3 times
    is correct.

    5)
    Correct, calculate by proportion,
    or 50 tickets * 20% = 10 .

    6)
    Remember they found 5 defective toys out of 600.

    7)
    Independent means one outcome does not affect the other.
    If you think it is self-explanatory, it seems that you understand the idea.

    8)
    What you 3/5 is the correct answer for a different problem, namely picking either an apple or an apricot.

    The question requires picking an apple first, then an apricot on the second draw.

    The two draws are independent steps.

    The probability of succeeding both steps is the product of succeeding each step.
    There is a total of 10 fruit pieces.
    P(Apple)=4/10
    P(Apricot)=2/10
    So P(Apple then Apricot)
    = P(Apple)*P(Apricot)
    =?

    9)
    There are 2 outcomes for each flip, and there are 2³=8 outcomes if it's flipped three times.
    Enumerate the 8 outcomes and count how many of them are HTH, and how many of them are HHH.
    (Ignore my previous answer to this problem, I misinterpreted the problem)

    10)
    Again, this is a two step experiment, tossing a coin and throwing a die.
    Find and post the probability of success for each step. Now since the two steps are independent, the probabilities of the two steps may be multiplied together to get the final probability.
