  • Mr. Shoe's Probability Problem!
  • Why hello there. My name is Mr.Shoe. My master has taken me to the store to pick out a new pair of shoe laces.
  • My master has brought out two colors of shoe laces. He has brought out 8 total shoelaces; one shoelace compensates for one shoe (me!). Half were brown and half were white color shoelaces.
  • I wonder what the probability he will pick the white shoelaces over all the other pairs?
  • If we take away two white laces, then the probability that my owner will use the white laces is unlikely, while the probability that my owner will pick the brown laces is likely.
  • If we keep all the strings together in equal amount, then the probability that the white strings are selected is neither unlikely nor likely. These principles are the same for the brown ones as well.
  • If we take away all of the white ones, then it is impossible for my owner to choose the white laces.
