  1. #5. Nope
    The probability is 7/11, but the odds are 7:4

    That is, 7 chances for and 4 against.

    There are 147 without a star, so 9 with a star. So

    P(star) = 9/156 = 3/52

    #7
    total marbles: 41
    P(red) = 9/41
    P(blue) = 10/41
    P(red,blue) = 9/41 * 10/41 = 90/1681

    You can't just add the probabilities. If so, then by specifying enough drawings, you'd eventually add up enough fractions to get more than 1. Actually, by specifying more and more drawings, the chance of getting them ALL keeps getting smaller.
