Q. If two unbiased dice are rolled, what is the probability of getting points neither 6 nor 9?
What is the probability that 4 children selected at random would have different birthdays?
A box contains 5 white and 7 black balls. Two successive drawn of 3 balls are made (i) with replacement (ii) without replacement. The probability that the first draw would produce white balls and the second draw would produce black balls are respectively
There are three boxes with the following composition:
Box I: 5 Red + 7 White + 6 Blue balls
Box II: 4 Red + 8 White + 6 Blue balls
Box III: 3 Red + 4 White + 2 Blue balls
If one ball is drawn at random, then what is the probability that they would be of same colour?
A number is selected at random from the first 1000 natural numbers. What is the probability that the number so selected would be a multiple of 7 or 11?
A bag contains 8 red and 5 white balls. Two successive draws of 3 balls are made without replacement. The probability that the first draw will produce 3 white balls and the second 3 red balls is
There are two boxes containing 5 white and 6 blue balls and 3 white and 7 blue balls respectively. If one of the the boxes is selected at random and a ball is drawn from it, then the probability that the ball is blue is
A problem in probability was given to three CA students A, B and C whose chances of solving it are 1/3, 1/5 and 1/2 respectively. What is the probability that the problem would be solved?
There are three persons aged 60, 65 and 70 years old. The survivals probabilities for these three persons for another 5 years are 0.7, 0.4 and 0.2 respectively. What is the probability that at least two of them would survive another five years?
Tom speaks truth in 30 percent cases and Dick speaks truth in 25 percent cases. What is the probability that they would contradict each other?
There are two urns. The first urn contains 3 red and 5 white balls whereas the second urn contains 4 red and 6 white balls. A ball is taken at random from the first urn and is transferred to the second urn. Now another ball is selected at random from the second arm. The probability that the second ball would be red is
For a group of students, 30 %, 40% and 50% failed in Physics , Chemistry and at least one of the two subjects respectively. If an examinee is selected at random, what is the probability that he passed in Physics if it is known that he failed in Chemistry?
Let the total number of students = 100
Number of students failed in physics = 30% of 100 =30
Number of students failed in chemistry = 40% of 100 =40
Number of students failed at least one of the two subjects = 50% of 100 =50
We need to calculate
