    Prework

    1. Box 1 has 4 red markers, 5 green markers, and 2 black markers. Box 2 has 3 red markers, 2 green markers, and 4 black markers. A box is chosen at random and then a marker is drawn from the box. What is the probability a green marker is chosen?
    2. You first randomly select a fair coin or weighted coin (the probability of a getting a tails on the weighted coin is .3). Then you flip the coin twice and record the results. What is the probability the coin was weighted, given that both flips are heads?
    3. A box contains six red balls and two white balls. Two of the 8 balls are randomly selected from the box, one after another and without replacement. What is the probability that the first ball selected is red, given that the second ball selected is white?

    Solutions

    The solutions are given below.
