# There are 3

Given:

Bag A contains 3 red balls and 5 black balls

Bag B contains 2 red balls and 3 black balls

It is told that one ball is drawn from bag A and two balls from bag B.

We need to find the probability that one ball is red and other two are black.

Let us find the Probability of drawing each colour ball from the bag.

P(B1) = P(drawing black ball from bag A)   P(R1) = P(drawing Red ball from bag A)   P(B21) = P(drawing black ball from bag B in 1st draw)   P(R21) = P(drawing Red ball from bag B in 1st draw)   P(B22) = P(drawing black ball from bag B in 2nd draw after drawing red ball)   P(R22) = P(drawing Red ball from bag B in 2nd draw after drawing Black ball)   P(B221) = P(drawing black ball from bag B in 2nd draw after drawing black ball)   We need to find the probability of drawing a red and two black balls from two bags

P(S) = P(drawing one red ball and two Black balls)

P(S) = P(drawing red ball from bag A and black balls from bag B) + P(drawing black ball from bag A and red and black balls from bag B)

Since drawing a ball is independent for each bag, the probabilities multiply each other.    .

The required probability is .
