Problem 1.5.5 written i jk where the first card drawn is i , the second is j and the third is k . The sample space is S 234 243 324 342 423 432 and each of the six outcomes has probability 1 6. The events E 1 E 2 E 3 O 1 O 2 O 3 are E 1 234 243 423 432 O 1 324 342 E 2 243 324 342 423 O 2 234 432 E 3 234 324 342 432 O 3 243 423 (a) The conditional probability the second card is even given that the first card is even is P E 2 E 1 P E 2 E 1 P E 1 P 243 423 P 234 243 423 432 2 6 4 6 1 2 (b) The conditional probability the first card is even given that the second card is even is P E 1 E 2 P E 1 E 2
