There are a total of 9 red discs and 7 black disks. The bags have been mixed thoroughly, so it is almost as if the contents have been dumped onto the ground and mixed. After mixing, there are 9 discs in the first bag. The probability of there being exactly three is:

The first three terms account for there being 3 red discs, and the last six terms account for there being 6 black discs. - Dec 5th 2010, 10:38 PMnikk

Hello, nikk!

We want the probability that Bag 1 ends up with its original contents.

There are two ways this can happen:

. . [1] A red is drawn from Bag 1 and a red is returned to Bag 1.

. . [2] A black is drawn from Bag 1 and a black is returned to Bag 1.

[1] A red is drawn from Bag 1: .

. . .Bag 2 now contains:7 red and 2 black discs:

. . .A red is drawn from Bag 2: .

. . . . .

[2] A black is drawn from Bag 1:

. . .Bag 2 now contains: 6 red and 3 black discs.

. . .A black is drawn from Bag 2: .

. . . . .
