Unformatted text preview: Consider the following problem: Two cards are drawn without replacement from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. What is the probability of choosing a queen, if the first card, drawn without replacement, was a jack? Use conditional probability for dependent events since the cards are drawn without replacement. Recall that a standard deck of 52 cards has 4 queens and 4 jacks. The jack was already drawn, so that leaves us with 51 cards in the deck. Since a jack is not a queen, we are left with 4 queens in the deck. Then applying the conditional probability rules, the probability of drawing a queen, given the first card drawn was a jack, is P( queenljack ) = g 3 0.078 4 A11 : — 3 0.078 swer 51 ...

    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.
