Question 17 of 29


An activity for primary school children involves 5 bags, 2 red and 3 blue. The bags are identical except for the colour. Each bag contains 10 plastic cubes. The red bags contain 5 white cubes and 5 black cubes. The blue bags contain 3 white cubes, 2 black cubes, and the remaining are transparent plastic glass cubes.

The activity involves the one student throwing a six-sided dice (numbered 1 – 6), and if an odd number shows up, the student will get to pick a cube from any red bag. If an even number shows up, the student will get to pick a cube from any blue bag. The bags are opaque, all the cubes feel the same to touch and any pick from the bags will therefore be a random blind pick.
