(A.) four or more will be red=1-26/52*25/51*24/50*23/49=1-0.06=0.94

(B). exactly two or three will be red = probability of getting two reds is 26/52*25/51=0.5*0.49=0.245

                                                           probability of getting 3 reds=26/52*25/51*24/50*23/49=0.1176

                                                            therefore the probability of getting two or three reds =0.245+0.1176=0.3626

(C). two or fewer will be red,26/52*25/51+26/52=0.245+0.5=0.745

 

(D). exactly five will be red?= 26/52*25/51*24/50*23/49 *22/48= 0.5*0.49*0.48*0.47*0.46=0.03

the probability that five will be red is 0.03


thank you for your patience.
