Given: Urn contains 1 white, 1 green and 2 red balls
All colors were seen
First we determine the probability of seeing all three colors among the 3 balls.
1 of the 4 balls are white, 1 of the 4 balls are green and 2 of the 4 balls are red. The probability is the number of favorable outcomes divided by the number of possible outcomes:
P(white)= # of favorable outcomes # of possible outcomes=\(\displaystyle\frac{{1}}{{4}}\)
P(green)= # of favorable outcomes # of possible outcomes=\(\displaystyle\frac{{1}}{{4}}\)
P(red)= # of favorable outcomes # of possible outcomes=\(\displaystyle\frac{{2}}{{4}}=\frac{{1}}{{2}}\)
Since the balls are drawn with replacement, the selection of the different balls are independent.
Thus it is then appropriate to use the Multiplication rule for independent events: \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}⋂{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{B}\right)}={P}{\left({A}\right)}\cdot{P}{\left({B}\right)}\).
\(P(\text{all different colors})=P(\text{Red, white and green})=P(red) \cdot P(white) \cdot P(green) =1/2 \cdot 1/4 \cdot 1/4 =1/(2 \cdot 4 \cdot 4) =1/32\)
2.Not all colors were seen Complement rule:
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({A}^{{c}}\right)}={P}{\left(\neg{A}\right)}={1}-{P}{\left({A}\right)}\)
\(P(\text{not all different colors})=1-P(\text{All different colors})=1-(1/32) =31/32 =0.06875 =96.875%\)

a) An urn contains pink and green flowers. Two flowers are chosen without replacement. The probability of selecting a ping flower and then a green flower is 0.73, and the probability of selecting a pink flower on the first draw is 0.24. What is the probability of selecting a green flower on the second draw, given that the first flower drawn was pink?
b) In a bolt factory, three machines Z, F and W makes 10%, 60% and 30% respectively of the products. It is known from the past experience that 4%, 7% and 9% of the products by each machine respectively are defective. Now suppose that a finished product is randomly selected. If the selected bolt is defective then what is the probability that the bolt was produced by Z machine.
