Q:

# A bag contains 4 red and 3 black balls. A second bag contains 2 red and 4 black balls. One bag is selected at random. From the selected bag, one ball is drawn. Find the probability that the ball drawn is red.

 A) 23/42 B) 19/42 C) 7/32 D) 16/39

Explanation:

A red ball can be drawn in two mutually exclusive ways

(i) Selecting bag I and then drawing a red ball from it.

(ii) Selecting bag II and then drawing a red ball from it.

Let E1, E2 and A denote the events defined as follows:

E1 = selecting bag I,

E2 = selecting bag II

A = drawing a red ball

Since one of the two bags is selected randomly, therefore

P(E1) = 1/2  and  P(E2) = 1/2

Now, $PAE1$ = Probability of drawing a red ball when the first bag has been selected = 4/7

$PAE2$  = Probability of drawing a red ball when the second bag has been selected = 2/6

Using the law of total probability, we have

P(red ball) = P(A) = $PE1×PAE1+PE2×PAE2$

= $12×47+12×26=1942$
