1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A new lifeform has been discovered in the sea. In particular, these sea-creatures come in THREE sexes, which are indistinguishable (except by other sea-creatures). If A robot captures N specimens, what is the probability these chocies will allow a “mated triple” with its promise of more little sea-creatures to come? 2. Relevant equations This homework is supposed to be on conditional probabilities and counting methods, so I suppose Baye's Theorem and Law of Total Probabilities would be useful 3. The attempt at a solution Unfortunately, I truly have no idea where to begin this problem. Any ideas?
