Expert Answer:

Dear Student
Please raise one question per query
Answer to you first question is as follows:
Purse A = 4 copper 3 Silver
Purse B = 6 copper and 2 silver coins.
Probability of choosing a bag =1/2
From bag A probability of getting copper coin =4/7
From Bag B probability of getting copper coin =6/8
So the required probability = 1/2[4/7+6/8]=37/56
