What is the probability of drawing a second red card, given that the first card is red?

 

P ( 2nd red l 1st red)  =   P ( both red) / P( 1st red)  =  

 

(25/102) / ( 1/2)  =  50/102 = 25/51

 

 

2.The probability of choosing two green balls without replacement is 1/11 , and the probability of choosing one green ball is 1/3.

What is the probability of drawing a second green ball, given that the first ball is green?

 

P ( 2nd green l 1st green )  =  P( both green) /P(1st green)  =  (1/11) / (1/3) = 3/11

 

 

 

3.A math teacher gave her students two tests. On the first test, 75% of the class passed the test, but only 60% of the class passed both tests. What is the probability that a student passes the second test, given that they passed the first one?

 

P ( passing second l  passed 1st)  =  P(passing both) / P (passing 1st) =

 

.60 / .75  =  4/5  =  .80
