A bag has 4 green marbles, 3 red marbles, and 3 yellow marbles. What is the probability that you pick a red marble, do not replace it, and pick another red marble?

    Similar to last question, just some changes: In the beginning, the probability of a red marble is 3/10 After you've picked the first one and do not replace it, the probability of a red marble is 2/9. So your statement would be: Probability of red and red = Probability of 1st red * probability of 2nd red = (3/10) * (2/9) = 6/90 = 1/15

    An easy tip to solve all probability questions: When it says (prob of x) AND (prob of y) you multiply, i.e. (prob of x)*(prob of y) When it says (prob of x) OR (prob of y) you add, i.e. (prob of x)+(prob of y)
