If three balls are selected at random, with replacement, find the probability that the first two are red and third one is green. ---------------- 1st red = 5/10 2nd red = 4/9 ---------------- 3rd green = 2/8 ================ P(rrg) = (5/10)(4/9)(2/8) = (4/9)(1/8) = 1/18 ================= Cheers, Stan H.
