A bag contains five pieces pf paper wit hthe emasures of various angles. The angle measures are 23,35,23,41,113. Suppose you pick 3 pieces of paper from the bag at random. What is the probability you can form an isosceles triangle with the three angles?

  1. There is only one pair of equal angles, so the number of triples which are isosceles is 3
    that is, 23 23 35, 23 23 41, and 23 23 113

    total number of triplets:
    1. 23 not in the triple --- 1
    2. one 23 --- choose 2 from the remaining 3 , C(3,2) = 3
    3. two 23's --- 3
    a total of 7

    here they are
    35 41 113
    23 35 41, 23 35 113, 23 41 113
    23 23 35, 23 23 41, 23 23 113

    prob of your event = 3/7
