Here is a short and (hopefully!) sweet riddle, since Christmas time is a time for sweets: if in a box there are 24 dark chocolates, 12 milk chocolates and 4 white chocolates, what is the probability I pick up a milk chocolate?

If I put my chocolate back into the box and take out another one, what is the probability I pick a milk chocolate again?

A sweet riddle indeed!

ReplyDeleteThe probability is 3/10 in the first case and in the second one. :D

The probability to pick a milk chocolate again is 12/40, because it is the same of the first extraction.

The probability that I pick up a milk chocolate is 12/40 and if I put the chocolate back into the box when I take out another one the probability I will pick up a milk chocolate again will be the same.
