    Answer:

    1 ; 7 /17

    Step-by-step explanation:

    17 balls numbered 1 through 17

    Picking without replacement :

    If the second ball picked = 4

    P(first ball has a smaller number)

    Numbers less Than = (3, 2, 1)

    P(number less than second ball Given 4 is drawn for second ball) :

    = (3/17 * 1/16) ÷ (3/17 * 1/16) +) 14/17 * 0)

    = (3 / 272) / (3 /272) * 0

    = 3 / 272 * 272 / 3

    = 1

    2.)

    (8/17 * 7/8) ÷ (8/17 * 7/8) + (9/17 * 1/17)

    7/17 ÷ (7 /17) + 10/17

    7 /17 ÷ 17/17

    7/17 ÷ 1

    7 /17
