    well, I can't help you read. I gave you the answer and I provided a link which explains fraction. You have all the tools necessary.

    (1/5)*(1/5)=(1*1)/(5*5)

    keep in mind that the answer is very close to, but not exactly (1/5)*(1/5)

    (1X1)/(5X5) large bag of candy suggests the effect of taking one out can be negated (1times1)divided by (5 times 5)

    learn how to use fractions. Math is something you need to deal with all your life. Better learn rather than getting problems solved by others here. You will struggle in your exams.

    The fact that you are solving probability problems without a basic knowledge about fractions tells me you either never paid attention in class, or your teacher never bothered to teach you basic arithmetic and algebra.
