A jar contains a variety of coins. The coins are distributed as follows:
For this distribution, find the probability of randomly selecting the following coins:
a) a nickel
b) a quarter, a dime or a penny
c) two quarters or two dimes, with replacement
d) three nickels, without replacement
e) a penny or any coin valued 10 cents or less
There are a total of 60 + 33 + 27 + 75 = 195 coins.
a) There are 33 nickels, out of 195 coins, so the probability is 33/195 = 0.1692.
b) This is the same as the ...
This solution shows how to find the probability of various coins being selected from a jar.
