A)

r

Toolbox:
  • Let\(E_1\)=1 ball drawn is Blue B
  • \(E_2\)=1 ball drawn is Red R
  • A=2ball drawn
  • P(A)=P\((E_1\) )P\((A/E_1\))+P\((E_2\))P\((A/E_2\))
P\((E_1\))=P(1ball drawn is B)
=\(\large\frac{5}{9}\)
P\((E_2\))=P(1ball drawn is R)
=\(\large\frac{4}{9}\)
P\((A/E_1\))=P(2nd ball drawn is blue given 1st ball dawn is blue)
=\(\large\frac{4}{8}\)
P\((A/E_2\))=P(2nd ball drawn is blue given 1st ball drawn is red)
=\(\large\frac{5}{8}\)
P(A)=\(\large\frac{5}{9}\times\)\(\large\frac{4}{8}\)+\(\large\frac{4}{8}\times\)\(\large\frac{5}{8}\)
