I'm a college CS grad who picks up freelance jobs when I have enough room in my schedule. Lately, in my spare time, I've been creating AI software applications on different platforms and drinking lots of milk. 1% only.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my follow-ups, I know once you start using the shortcuts it's difficult to go back, I appreciate you answering in a way I could easily understand. :)

comment Mary can answer 20/25 problems correct… simple probability
I see, so instead of 10/20 it should have been 20/25, then 19/24, etc for each correctly answered problem? At the time this answer was jotted up, we hadn't done combinations, and I wanted to see what I had done wrong in my thought process, since that will hopefully correlate correctly when we start using combinations more.

This definitely helps clarify for Q1 for the first bolded assumption. Thanks very much for taking the time to explain fully. If you could help me with the others, I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

I appreciate the effort, but we're not quite to hypergeometrics yet, could you perhaps explain what about my answer (using the way it was formatted) was incorrect? I'd like to learn from my mistake.

I didn't really know which should be used regarding 20/25 or 10/20, wasn't sure it would make a difference... :-/

Thanks for the effort on the first one, could you explain it using combinations as I did so I can understand exactly where I went wrong? That would be great. An answer alone for the second doesn't do me much good though since I got it wrong and don't know how to find the 1/25 probability. :( I'm really looking to learn from my mistakes.
