i ! 1. (30 pts.) Your instructor played on a softball team this past summer where we played two games each night we played. Suppose that we won the first game 35% of the time (i.e. a probability of 0.35), the second game 75% of the time, and both games 25% of the time. Determine each of the following: a. The chance we won at least one game. f(f~5) = ./O..f-.Z5-1-.>D b. The chance we won only the first game 5 f f( r=~ ..5 () =-~ f;:. ()),; fir?f- C;-(J.~ S:.. .,..54.C e;.-I\.L 1\ c.

### 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.

• 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.
