A) if the number of red = number of white then the probablility of picking one of each is 1/2 X 1/2 = 1/4

B) if the number of one type of carnations is given we cant find the probability because we dont know the total number or ratio of the types of carnations.

c. 1. if 4 of each 1/2*47=4/14. If 2 of each 1/2*2/3=1/3

2. Not enough info. Combined works 1/2*5/9=5/18

answer is C...1 is not sufficient b/c probability changes with the number of flowers in bouquet.....2 is simply not enough.....1& 2 together work b/c you have the exact number of flowers in the bouquet..
