since these are independent events (and you place the first marble back), the answer is : 1. P(drawing a clear) * P(drawing a purple) 2. there are 30 marbles, and 2 clear marbles, the probability of drawing a clear is 2/30 3. once you put one back, there are still 30 marbles, and 5 purple marbles, and the probability of drawing a purple is 5/30 4. so the answer is 2/30 * 5/30 = 10/900 = 1/90
