A pond is freshly stocked with 15 brown trout and 9 lake trout. The first fisherman in the area catches and releases a trout. He catches another trout a while later.

What is the probability that the fisherman caught lake trout each time?

 

1/8

 

3/23

 

9/64

 

27/184

There are 24 total fish

 

Each time....the probability of  catching a lake  trout = 9/24  = 3/8

 

So

 

P (lake trout each time )  =  3/8 *  3/8   =    9 /64
