There is 10 socks in the laundry basket. 4 are black, and 6 are white. What is the probability of you picking a pair of you picking 2 white socks from the laundry basket?

P ( 2 white)  =

 

 

P( white on first draw)  *   P (white on  second  draw)  =

 

              (6 / 10)             *          (5  / 9  )  =      30   / 90      =   1 / 3
