(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Q: 2 blue balls and 1 white ball are in a bucket. You draw one ball at a time, record the color of the ball and put it back to the bucket until you get at least 2 blue balls and 2 white balls. Let X be the number of blue balls you drew, Y be the number of white balls you drew, Z be the number of balls you drew. What is the probability mass functions of X,Y, and Z? (i.e. give the probabilities of all the possible outcomes for X,Y,Z, respectively)

I understand the question, but don't understand the solution. Can someone please explain/help me out?

Thanks a lot!
