Hi I'm just doing some problems and this question doesn't have an answer. Can someone check these over please? Suppose I bet on red at roulette and you bet on black, both bets on the same spin of the wheel: a) What is the probability that we both lose? b) What is the probability that at least one of us win? c) What is the probability that at least one of use lose? a) b) b) Cheers David.

a) Both lose only if it lands on 0 or 00. Odds are 2/38. b) If it lands on any of the 36 numbers one of you will win. Odds are 36/38. c) Since there is no slot which is both red and black, it is certain that at least one of you will lose.
