Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:00:41] Doing well also, thank you.

[00:00:48] Okay, just reading it over, but you have a super start!

Chase (Customer)

[00:00:57] its long

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:01:03] yes, it is!

[00:01:34] wow - this is involved!

[00:01:50] so far looking good .. .

Chase (Customer)

[00:01:59] yes and i have 10 of them

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:02:37] first one is right . .
5/9

[00:02:58] b is right too

[00:03:21] won't the dress pants be out of all the pant choices?

Chase (Customer)

[00:03:44] dress pants is only a choice
with dark socks.

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:04:01] right, but it just says what is the probability he will wear dress pants . .

[00:04:10] so out of 14 pant choices, I think.

Chase (Customer)

[00:04:33] so i wasn't sure if it was 4/9
because it will always be dress
pants with dark sock or 4/14

[00:05:01] right

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:05:07] good thing to think about; however, it will be out of all of them

[00:05:18] kind of like which socks (dark) is out of all the socks

Chase (Customer)

[00:05:28]
i see now.

[00:05:35] 4/14

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:05:40]
and that will reduce .
.

[00:05:42] to what?

Chase (Customer)

[00:05:59] 2/7

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:05:54] You got it!

Chase (Customer)

[00:06:04]
or 29%

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:06:13] checking d next

[00:06:28] Yes, 29%

[00:06:30] very good

[00:06:49]
d is perfect

[00:06:58] okay, that brings us to e

Chase (Customer)

[00:07:24] e i think is no. dress pants is
4/14 and the other two are 5
of 14

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:07:32] That is exactly right

[00:07:44] and that is exactly the right reasoning!

[00:07:37] You got it!

[00:07:57] Same chance of shorts or jeans ..

[00:07:59] but not all three.

Chase (Customer)

[00:08:09] 36% = 36 % + 29% + 101%

[00:08:21] the = should be a +

Lisa G Y (Tutor)

[00:08:31] right

[00:08:43] and we had to round some so that makes sense

Chase (Customer)

[00:08:44] whew
