Question 38:

A and B throw a pair of dice alternately. A wins the game if he gets a total of and B wins if she gets a total of . It A starts the game, find the probability of winning the game by A in third throw of the pair of dice.




Let is the probability, if A wins in a throw

And is the probability, if B wins in a throw

Required probability

Question 39:

Two dice are tossed. Find whether the following two events A and B are independent:

where denotes a typical sample point.


We have,

So, A and B are not independent.
