A matching pair of blue socks, a matching pair of red socks, and one lone white right-footed sock are in a drawer. Suppose that a person blindly pulls a sock out of the drawer and it is not red (i.e., it is either the white sock or one of the blue socks). He discards this sock, so four socks remain. Now he reaches into the drawer again and chooses a sock at random from the four socks that remain. What is the probability that this sock is blue? 2
