Probability problemHi, please, tell me if my was of solving this problem is good or not : Users of public transport are waiting for the bus: 3 women and 1 man. One of them wears glasses, another gloves, and another a hat. What is the probability that the man has none of these accessories? #2 20121229 12:41:11
Re: Probability problemI think you are correct and the problem meant to say what is the probabil that the man has one (not none) of these accessori, in which case 3/4 would be he is wearing one of the things. Your iteration of the permutations seems correct. I would stick to your guns. Good Luck. igloo myrtilles fourmis #5 20121230 06:17:41
Re: Probability problemI agree with John.
