Section B [15 marks]
Answer any one question in this section.
7. Box X contains 4 blue marbles, 2 red marbles and 6 green marbles. Box Y contains
3 blue marbles and 2 green marbles.
A game is played that involves rolling a fair die followed by drawing a marble from either
box X or box Y. If the number shown on the die is greater than 4, then a marble is drawn
from box X, and if otherwise, a marble is drawn from box Y.
(a) Find the probability that
(i) a blue marble is drawn
(ii) the number shown on the die is greater than 4 given that a blue marble is drawn.
(iii) a blue or a red marble is drawn. [10 marks]
(b) The same game is played but with two marbles drawn from either box X or box Y.
Find the probability that both marbles are blue if the first marble is drawn
(i) with replacement
(ii) without replacement. [5 marks]
8. The table shows the advertising expenses and sales revenues of a company selling
computers for the first seven months of 2009.
