    Container 1 has 10 items, 3 of which are defective. Container 2 has 6 items, 2 of which are defective. If one item is drawn independently from each container:

    Find the probability distribution for X defined as the number of defective items drawn (Hint: You have to find P(X=0), P(X=1) and P(X=2). You may have to use both multiplicative and additive rules to find P (X=1)).

    Hi there,

    First, the events from drawing one ball from contain 1 or contain 2 are independent.
    When x=0, the probability of having no defective ball P=(7/10) (from container ...
