The spinner is equally likely to land in any of ten places The number on the place where you land indicates the number of spots you must move on the board Two of the places have a in which you must move one spot back on the board Four of the places have a 0 three have a l and one has a 2 Let X be the number of spots you must move after one spin a Fill in the numbers in the PMF below 4 pt b Find

bag of candy but allows them to eat only three pieces now Each bag of candy contains ve red candies seven yellow candies and ve white candies Each reaches into their bag and draws three pieces at random but none of them like the white candy Hence each student will continue to replace all three candies and redraw three new ones until there are no white pieces are in their sample One of the students Nolan has drawn at least one white in each of his rst eight sample draws Let W be the number of draws until he is successfully gets a draw with no white candies Using this information what is the probability that W is greater than 11 6 pts
