ACSC/MATH 347/447 Exam #1 100 Points Total March 4, 2010 course Average: You must show enough work, or give sufﬁcient explanation, in each problem to clearly indicate how
you obtain your answer. No credit will be given for a problem if there is insufﬁcient work/explanation. You may leave binomial coefﬁcients and indicated sums and products in your answers unless otherwise

a chip is drawn from urn I which contains three white chips and four red chips; if it shows tails, a
chip is drawn from urn II which contains six white chips and three red chips. The coin was tossed
and a chip was drawn as described above. Completely evaluate your answers in this problem. a. What is the probability that a white chip was drawn? ‘
