Fan Appreciation Night, Part 1

khalid and other students at the it's academic tournament

The It’s Academic Tournament includes a team round in which each team has an opportunity to answer ten questions.  The team earns points for each correct answer and there is no penalty for wrong answers. 

Check Your Understanding

Let’s say that It’s Academic adds a new round to the competition.  In this round each team selects questions from a grab bag with 30 potential questions (5 from each category).  Once a question is asked, it is not returned to the bag. 

Check Your Understanding

Now consider the following question:

If Khalid’s team is given the first two draws from the grab bag, what are the chances of drawing two history questions?
