1) in successive rolls of a pair of fair dice, what is the probability of getting 2 sevens before 6 even numbers?
2) suppose that an ordinary deck of 52 cards (contain 4 aces) is randomly divided into 4 hands of 13 cards each. p is the probability that each hand has an ace. Ei is the event that the ith hand has exactly one ace. determine p=P(E1E2E3E4) by using the multiplication rule.
1) The probability of getting 7 is P (7) = 6/36 = 1/6
The probability of getting an even number is P(even) = 18/36 = 1/2
The probability we want is equal to the ...
