### There are two bags. One contains 4 white & 5 Black balls, another contains 4 white & 3 black balls. If one ball is drawn from the first bag and kept in another bag unseen then the probability of choosing a black ball from the second bag is:

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 8 - Question 1

Let, the required probability is P.

Probability of the following Events:

P(A) = One white ball is drawn from the first bag

P(B) = One black ball is drawn from the first bag.

P(C|A) = One black ball is drawn from the second bag when there are 5 White and 3 black balls.

P(D|B) = One black ball is drawn from the second bag when there are 4 White and 4 black balls.

Case:1 If the white ball is transferred from bag 1 to 2 then

Probability of choosing a black ball from bag 2

P(A) = P(white ball transferred) × P(Ball drawn black)

Case:2  If the black ball transferred from bag 1 to 2 then

Probability of choosing a black ball from bag 2

Required probability, P = P(A) × P(B)

SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 8 - Question 2

### Two successive discounts, each of x% on the marked price of an article, are equal to a single discount of Rs. 331.20 . If the marked price of the article is Rs. 920 , then find the value of x.
