There are 27 red, 43 blue, and 30 green gumballs. Inserting a coin into the gumball machine yields a gumball. Each gumball is equally likely to be selected for each inserted coin. 1. (2 points) What is the probability that of getting 3 red gumballs, 2 blue gumballs, and 5 green gumballs after inserting the first 10 coins? ( 27 3 )( 43 2 )( 30 5 ) ( 100 10 ) . (1) 2. (2 points) What is the probability of not having a red gumball after inserting the first 10 coins? ( 73 10 ) ( 100 10 ) . (2) 3. (2 points) What is the probability of having exactly two colors of gumballs after inserting the first 10 coins? ( 43+30 10 ) + ( 27+43 10 ) + ( 27+30 10 )- ( 27 10 )- ( 43 10 )- ( 30 10 ) ( 100 10 ) . (3) 4. (1 point) The person ahead of you inserts the first coin into the gumball machine and takes a gumball. She gets a red gumball. What is the probability that you get a green gumball?...
