Jennifer randomly takes two socks out of 24 that have been thrown together in a drawer. 8 are white, 10 are black, 4 are pink and 2 are orange. What is the probability of drawing two white socks?

P ( two white socks)  =

 

[ Number of ways to choose 2 white socks from 8] / [Number of ways to choose 2 socks from 24] =

 

C(8, 2)  / C(24, 2)  =

 

7/69  ≈  .1014   ≈  10.14 %
