For the following exercises, use this scenario: a bag of M&Ms contains $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}12\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ blue, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}6\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ brown, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}10\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ orange, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}8\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ yellow, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}8\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ red, and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}4\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ green M&Ms. Reaching into the bag, a person grabs 5 M&Ms.

What is the probability of getting all blue M&Ms?

$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{C\left(12,5\right)}{C\left(48,5\right)}=\frac{1}{2162}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$

What is the probability of getting $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}4\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ blue M&Ms?

What is the probability of getting $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}3\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ blue M&Ms?

$\frac{C\left(12,3\right)C\left(36,2\right)}{C\left(48,5\right)}=\frac{175}{2162}$

What is the probability of getting no brown M&Ms?

Use the following scenario for the exercises that follow: In the game of Keno, a player starts by selecting $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}20\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ numbers from the numbers $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}1\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ to $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}80.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ After the player makes his selections, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}20\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ winning numbers are randomly selected from numbers $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}1\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ to $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}80.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ A win occurs if the player has correctly selected $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}3,4,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ or $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}5\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ of the $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}20\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ winning numbers. (Round all answers to the nearest hundredth of a percent.)
