Erica was out of town for a month, so she had her friend Sara check her mailbox. Each day, Sara would count how many different types of mail Erica received and then place the mail in a box inside Erica's apartment. The table below shows how many pieces of each type of mail Erica received during the month. Erica's Mail Received in a Month Type of Mail Number of Pieces Bills20 Cards6 Junk Mail24 Magazines8 Advertisements38 Wrong Address 4 According to the table, if Erica drew two pieces of mail randomly from the box, without replacement, what is the probability she would draw out

    1/25 is the chance she will draw a wrong address, if she draws 4 times, that would be 1/25 times 4, that would equal 4/100

    So if I am right, it would be 4/100 and that can be simplified to 1/25
