Solutions to Homework 05 1. a. P [ace in first draw] = 4 52 . b. Suppose the first draw is seen to be an ace. Then, we now have 3 aces remaining in the 51 cards. Thus, P [ace in second draw | ace in first draw] = 3 51 If the the first draw is not an ace, we will have 4 aces remaining in the 51 cards. Thus P [ace in second draw | no ace in first draw] = 4 51 If we do not look at the first draw, then, using the theorem on total probability P [ace in second draw] = P [ace in second draw | ace in first draw] P [ace in first draw] + P [ace in second draw | no ace in first draw] P [no ace in first draw] = 3 51 4 52 + 4 51 48 52 = 12 + 192 52 · 51 = 4 52 = P [ace in first draw] Thus the probability of an ace depends on the observations available. c. The total number of way to choose 7 cards out of a deck of 52 cards is given by parenleftBigg 52 7 parenrightBigg . We need 3 aces in these 7 cards out of a total of 4 possible aces. The number of ways to draw 3 aces out of 4 is given by parenleftBigg 4 3 parenrightBigg . The remaining 4 cards of the 7 are drawn from the 48 non-ace card which results in parenleftBigg 48 4 parenrightBigg possibilities. Then, P [3 aces in 7 cards] = parenleftBigg

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
