Spring 2007 — Midterm 1 Name: TA: VERSION B a)» The exam has 5 problems. (
(b) Show your work for every problem. Answers Without justiﬁcation Will not receive credit.
(c) Calculators are not allowed.  (d) There is a blank page at the end of the exam for if you need it.  1. (20 points) Let S be a sample space, and suppose E and F are events. (a) If Pr[E] = 0.4, Pr[F] = 0.6 and Pr[E U P] = 0.7, what is Pr[E H F]? (b) Draw a Venn Diagram that clearly shows all the relevant events and their probabilities. 2. (20 points) A bag contains 10 balls, each of a different color. We randomly draw three balls from
the bag. (a) What is the the number of different color—combinations? (b) One of the balls is blue. How many colorcombinations are there that include the blue ball? 3. (20 points) Two kids sell lottery tickets in your neighborhood and you buy one of their tickets.
Each ticket has two letters on it, you win a prize if your lottery ticket has at least one letter in

branch is equally likely, what would be the chance that she picks a job in Wisconsin? ...
