Question 34

waecmaths question: 

A box contains 2 white and 3 blue identical balls. If two balls are picked at random from the box, one after the other with replacement, what is the probability that they are of different colors?

Option A: 

$\frac{2}{3}$

Option B: 

$\frac{3}{5}$

Option C: 

$\frac{7}{20}$

Option D: 

$\frac{12}{25}$

waecmaths solution: 

$\Pr (WB)+\Pr (BW)=\left( \frac{2}{5}\times \frac{3}{5} \right)+\left( \frac{3}{5}\times \frac{2}{5} \right)=\frac{6}{25}+\frac{6}{25}=\frac{12}{25}$
