On the second day of Statistics, my teacher gave to me….two turtle doves. The pet store that my Statistics teacher frequents has 25 doves, of which 8 are turtle doves. (See * below. This is not a trick question as turtle doves really do exist. If you are visualizing a cross between a turtle and a dove, forget the idea. Turtle cheesecake does not contain any turtle either, and I can assure you that it exists also) What is the probability that the Statistics teacher randomly selected two turtle doves from this pet store?

  1. This just like drawing without replacement, so your probability is

    8/25 * 7/24 = 7/75
