Re: Probability problem.

Hi bobbym,


"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  - Buddha?

"Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay."

Re: Probability problem.

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Probability problem.

New problem:

There are 2 blue balls, 4 green balls, 8 white balls, 16 red balls and 32 black balls.
What is the probability of picking 5 balls, such that at most two balls of each color is to be included (e.g. [red, red, green, green, black] is fine; but [red, red, red, green, black] is forbidden)

i) Without replacement?
ii) With replacement?

Re: Probability problem.

Hi;

Okay, I will check the calculations. Could have made the mistake right there.

Yep, you are right. Calculation error.

Re: Probability problem.

Hi gAr;

Sorry, for the first answer. Seems I can not copy and paste correctly into calculation boxes, been a bad week.
