A rather hard probability question.
The question is:
I've done (i), it was pretty basic. But (ii) has me stumped. Anyone got any ideas?
A bag contains eight counters. Five of the counters are green, three are red. A counter is taken at random from the bag and its colour is noted. The counter is not replaced. A second counter is then taken from the bag. Calculate the probability that:
(i) the first counter is green and the second is red
(ii) the counters are of the same colour
Thanks in advance,
