2.) In the second half of the year, your teacher has 33 short stories to choose from. You are asked to read 12 stories this time. How many different ways are there to choose the 12 stories to read?

Mr F says: $\displaystyle {\color{red} ^{33}C_{12}}$

3.)The probability that you will make the hockey team is 2/3. The probability that you will make the swimming team is 3/4. If the probability that you make both teams is 1/2, what is the probability that you at least make one of teams? that you make neither of the team?

Mr F says:

$\displaystyle {\color{red} \frac{2}{3} + \frac{3}{4} - \frac{1}{2}}$.

1 - (above answer).

4.) In order to choose a mascot for a new school, 2755 students were surveyed: 896 chose a falcon, 937 chose a ran, and 842 chose a panther. The remaining students did not vote. A student is chosen at random.

- What is the probability that the student's choice was a panther?

- Was not a ram?

- Was either a falcon or a ram?

Mr F says: Draw a Venn diagram.

5.)

35 students in an Algebra 2 class took a test: 9 received A's, 18 Received B's, and 8 Received C's. Find the prob of a given even.

- IF a student from the class is chosen at random, what is the probbaility that the student did not receive a C?

Mr F says: $\displaystyle {\color{red} 1 - \frac{8}{35}}$

- If the teacher randomly chooses 3 test papers, what is the probability that the teacher chose tests with grades A, B, and C in that order?

Mr F says: (9/35)(18/34)(8/33) = ....

**for 5, im guessing... add the prob of A and B?**

**for 4, 842/2755?**

**1.) 10(25) ---?????**

**2.) 12(33) -----?**
