For probability and combinatorics when stuck I do it the hard way. No calculations, draw trees or count them all by hand.
anyway, ill go through what you posted tomorrow, i dont have the energy tonight to think about it. thanks for your efforts to help.*curiously, when you get stuck on problems, how do you operate to solve them? any principles,etc. ?
Here is the full tree do you know what to do from here? Pay no attention to the numbers after the words circle triangle or hexagon.
Yes, please. !
The question is the same as the one you posted in post #1. The answer and logic are the same, 4 / 9. I can draw a tree if it will help.
If you are not sure of the problem then please just copy it over here.
i think im gonna re read the problem... im not sure of even understanding what they want ..ty for your help
ho means I drew a hexagon and then something else. The probability of drawing a h is 2 / 6 because there are 2 of them out of the total 6. Then I draw an o, the probability is ( 4 / 6 ) because there are 4 of them out of 6. Same logic for oh.
it gives 16/36
Can you finish that?
You always have to get an answer. One way, or the other.
now the triangles and the circle we are not interested in so we give them the generic label of "other." Your set becomes,
the tree looks like this,
do you follow?
yes. and what do you mean by simplest ideas ?
