    Answer:

    (a) 0.3333 or 33.33%

    (b) 0.5000 or 50.00%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    (a) With the first toss, there is a 2/3 chance that the monkey gets it wrong, if the monkey gets it wrong, there is a 1/2 chance it gets the second wrong, which guarantees that the last toss is also wrong. The probability is:

    P = \frac{2}{3}* \frac{1}{2}*1=0.3333

    (b) There are 6 possible outcomes for this experiment, there are three outcomes with exactly one match, (Red is correct, white is correct, black is correct). The probability is:

    P=\frac{3}{6}=0.5
