Your boss has called a 5 a.m. meeting before sheleaves to catch a flight to the Bahamas for her vacation, and there is a power outage. Your alarm doesnot go off and you sit up in bed with a fright at what you guess is about 4:45 a.m. You are tryingfrantically to get dressed and you need to reach into your sock drawer to get two matching socks in thedark. Naturally, your mind wanders to solving probability equations. Your sock drawer contains 20 totalsocks which consist of 10 matched pairs of socks. All of them are only black or white and they are loose,disorganized randomly, and not bound together. This means you have 10 black socks and 10 white socksin your disorganized drawer. You do not have a light source because your phone did not charge and youcannot find a flashlight or a candle. You are completely in the dark! You have to get dressed and go! Youhave to math fast!1. Think for a minute and describe your optimal strategy for solving this problem in 50 words or less.
