Bowl A contains 3 red and 2 white chips, and bowl B contains four red and three white chips. A chip is drawn A and transferred to B.

A. Compute the probability of then drawing a red chip from bowl B?

B. Compute the probability of then drawing A white chip from Bowl b?

Original state: A={3R, 2W} and B={4R, 3W}
Next state: A ={3R, 1W} and B = {4R, 4W} $\rightarrow p(W)=\frac{4}{8}$

You do the rest.
