An unbiased coin is tossed. If the result is head, a pair of unbiased dice are rolled and the number obtained by adding the number on the two faces are noted. If the result is a tail, a card from a well-shuffled pack of 11 cards numbered 2, 3, 4……, 12 is picked & the number on the card is noted. What is the probability that the number noted is 7 or 8.

Let us define the events


                A : head appears.


                B : Tail appears


                C : 7 or 8 is noted.


 


        We have to find the probability of C i.e. P(C)


 


                P(C) = P(A) P (C/A) + P(B) P(C/B)


 


Now we calculate each of the constituents one by one


 


P(A) = probability of appearing head =1/2


 


P(C/A) = Probability that event C takes place i.e. 7 or 8 being noted when head is already appeared. (If something is already happen then it becomes certain, i.e. now it is certain that head is appeared we have to certainly roll a pair of unbiased dice).


 


=11/36 (since (6, 1) (1, 6) (5, 2) (2, 5) (3, 4) (4, 3) (6, 2) (2, 6) (3, 5) (5, 3) (4, 4) i.e. 11 favourable cases and of course

   6 × 6 = 36 total number of cases)


 


        Similarly, P(B) = 1/2


 


P(B/C) = 2/11 (Two favourable cases (7 and 8) and 11 total number of cases).


 


        Hence, P(C) = 1/2 * 11/36 + 1/2 * 2/11 = 193/792
