Unformatted text preview: Midterm Examination of Probability Datci90f04s’23 l.(20%)Please preve the fellewing statements:
(a)The prcbability cf selecting 11’2 in a tandem selectien at a paint ﬁem (0,1) is 0. (10%)
(b) A paint is selected at randem frem interval (0,1). The prebability that is irratieual is 1. (10%) 2.(10%)If twc fair dice are rolled 10 times, what is the prebahility ef at least cne 6 (en either die) in exactly ﬁve cf these 10

Suppcse that feur cf these chips are selected at randern and transferred to a seccnd urn, which was criginally empty. If a randcm chip selected ﬁcm this seccnd urn is red, what is the prcbability
