This is owing for the primitive gentleman she uses there is a 50% Ms. Hernandez can get a red gumball and a 50% hazard she can get a red one. For the cooperate and third she has the identical hazards. The chart adown shows all the likely combinations of gumballs Ms. Hernandez could accept gotten.

The formula I root to clear-up these tenors is: [(# of tinges)(of kids)]- [(#of tinges)-1]= how plenteous specie they demand to exhaust. Ex of formula for scrutiny #1 is: [(2 tinges)(2 kids)]-[(2 tinges)-1]= 3 cents Ex of formula for scrutiny #2 is: [(3 tinges)(2 kids)]- [(3 tinges)-1]= 4 cents Ex of formula for scrutiny #3 is: [(3 tinges)(3kids)]-[(3 tinges)-1]= 7 cents Ex of formula for scrutiny #4 is: [(2 tinges)(3 kids)]-[(2 tinges)-1]= 5 centsI figured this formula out by letter out how kids and tinges in each tenor and then the utmost whole late succeeding I root each solution. Ex: Tenor 1: 2 kids, 2 tinges, max late: 4. I knew that two this demanded to be multigenous and this demanded to be subtracted so I did a imagine and bridle until I root the solution.
