• You are 2/3 as likely to get a white towel as you are to get a red towel with

no stripes: Pr(R \ S) = 2/3Pr(W)

(a) How many white towels are there?

(b) What is the probability of getting a striped towel?

I have no idea how to start this problem, I feel as if there isn't enough information given. If anybody could help me in any way that would be extremely helpful, thank you.
