    Total outcome 30 + 15 + 5 = 50 50C1 P(yellow) = 5C1 / 50C1 p(green) = 15C1 / 50C1 Total Prob = P(yellow) + p(green)

    find the probabilities of each colour as a fraction then substitute the specific colour probability into the right hand side and multiply. P(Yellow then Green) = P(Yellow) x P(Green) lastly convert the fraction to a percentage
