Exam P Practice Problem 108 – random selection of balls

Both 108-A and 108-B use the following information.

Bowl One contains 1 blue ball and 4 orange balls. Bowl Two contains 3 blue balls and 2 orange balls. A bowl is chosen at random. Balls are randomly chosen one at a time from the chosen bowl, with each chosen ball returning to the bowl.

.

Problem 108-A

What is the probability that four of the first six selections are blue ball?

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold A \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \  \frac{\bold 4 \bold 8 \bold 6}{\bold 3 \bold 1 \bold 2 \bold 5}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold B \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 1 \bold 0 \bold2}{\bold 6 \bold 2 \bold 5}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold C \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 3 \bold 4}{\bold 2 \bold 0 \bold 5}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold D \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 2 \bold 1}{\bold 1 \bold 2 \bold 5}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold E \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 1 \bold 0 \bold 2 \bold 0}{\bold 3 \bold 1 \bold 2 \bold 5}

Problem 108-B

If four of the first six selections are blue balls, what is the probability that the balls are selected from Bowl One?

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold A \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \  \frac{\bold 9}{\bold 2 \bold 5 \bold 5}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold B \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 2}{\bold 4 \bold 3}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold C \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 4}{\bold 8 \bold 5}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold D \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 1 \bold 5}{\bold 2 \bold 5 \bold 5}

      \displaystyle \bold ( \bold E \bold ) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{\bold 1}{\bold 2}
