###### Question details

We have a large jar filled with balls of three colors, red,
white, and black, which we will

draw from the jar one at a time. There are equal numbers of each
color in the jar, so the chances of

drawing any color is 1/3. Now consider an experiment (random
process) in which three balls are drawn

consecutively from the jar. We record the sequence of colors as the
outcome of the experiment. For

example, “RRW” means the first ball was red, the second ball was
red, and the third ball was white.

a) Is the probability space for this process discrete or
continuous?

b) How many possible outcomes are there?

c) Enumerate the outcomes.

d) What is the probability of each outcome?

e) What is the probability of the event “one ball of each color was
drawn”, where the order in which the

colors were drawn does not matter?
