(c) Find the probability that no more than 20 students obtain red balls on the 2nd
and 3rd pick.
(d) Suppose that only 10 boxes are considered. Find the probability that no more
than 3 students obtain red balls on the 2nd and 3rd pick.
(e) Suppose that after the first pick from the box, an extra ball of the same color is
added to the box with probability ½. Otherwise no new ball is added. Given
that there is no other change; for the 100 boxes, find the expected number of
times an extra red ball is added to a box.
(f) Suppose that 5 boxes are combined into one box. A student is then asked to
take out 11 balls from the box at random. Find the probability that 7 are red. Question 2:
[18 Marks]
An urn has two coins. These coins each has two faces. The probabilities of landing
heads (head faces up) for the two coins are:
Coin 1:
Coin 2: lands heads with probability ½
(coin has head on one side and tail on the other side)
lands heads with probability 1
(coin has heads on both sides) ht
