Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Similar 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1An 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)
