There is a .6 probabilty that an elem tree has Dutch elem disease. An arborist selects 3 elms in the area. Give the sample space that list all of the possible combinations of diseased (D) and not diseased (N) for the 3 trees. a) what is the probabilty that none of the 3 trees have the Dutch elm disease? b) what is the probabilty that at lease one of the 3 trees has the Dutch elm disease? I really appreciate you help with this question. Thank you so much!

An arborist selects 3 elms in the area. ---------- Give the sample space that list all of the possible combinations of diseased (D) and not diseased (N) for the 3 trees. DDD,DDN,DND,NDD,NND,NDN,DNN,NNN ---------------------------------------------- a) what is the probabilty that none of the 3 trees have the Dutch elm disease? P(NNN) = 1/8 ------ b) what is the probabilty that at least one of the 3 trees has the Dutch elm disease? P(at least one has) = 1 - P(none has) = 1 - (1/8) ================ Cheers, Stan H. ================
