1 answer

W  wrong
R  right
a) prob RRR = (1/3)(1/3)(1/3) = 1/27
b) prob WWW = (2/3)^3 = 8/27
c) 2 right could be
WRR, RWR, or RRW
prob(of that) = 3 x (2/3)(1/3)^2 = 6/27
(notice the other case is 2 wrong
prob of that = 3(1/3)(2/3)^2 = 12/27
and notice that 1/27 + 8/27 + 6/27 + 12/27 = 27/27 as it should be 👍
