**Solution. **Suppose event A is a second ball is white; B1 is the first ball is white; B2 is the first ball is red. Using the Law of Total Probability for our case get

“P(A)=P(A/B_1)P(B_1)+P(A/B_2)P(B_2)”

According to the condition of the problem

“P(B_1)=frac {6} {10}”

“P(B_2)=frac {4} {10}”

“P(A/B_1)=frac {5} {9}”“P(A/B_2)=frac {6} {9}”

As a result, we get

“P(A)=frac {6} {10} *frac {5} {9}+frac {4} {10} *frac {6} {9}=frac{30} {90}+frac{24} {90}=frac{54} {90}=0.6”

**Answer. **0.6
