In a large bag of candy, each of the 5 colors (red, orange, yellow, blue, green) occurs with the same probability. You reach in and select 2 candies.
Find the probability that both candies are blue.

- anonymous

approx. (1/5)*(1/5)

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)

- anonymous

1&1.

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

is it 0.1

- anonymous

(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.

- anonymous

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.

did you watch the video? Did it help?
