2.first is red & second is white

1.both are white

2.first is red & second is white

Expert's answer

1.

Probability of the first white is:30/(10+20+15)=30/45=10/15=2/3

Probability of the second white is: 29/44*2/3=58/132

2.

Probability of the first red is: 10/45=2/9

Probability of the second white is 30/44*2/9=50/44*3=50/132

Probability of the first white is:30/(10+20+15)=30/45=10/15=2/3

Probability of the second white is: 29/44*2/3=58/132

2.

Probability of the first red is: 10/45=2/9

Probability of the second white is 30/44*2/9=50/44*3=50/132
