5. vivianrush

im so confused

6. niksva

@vivianrush can u tell me what is probability of determining the red marbles out of the total marbles ( red + blue + white) ?

7. vivianrush

6+4+6

8. niksva

6+4+6 = 16 are total number of marbles

9. niksva

i m asking about the probability?

10. vivianrush

wait what.

11. niksva

probability of finding blue marble = number of blue marbles / total numbers of marbles now can u tell me what is probability of finding blue marble?

12. vivianrush

4

13. niksva

No the probability of finding blue marble = 4 / 16

14. niksva

now can u find the probability of finding the red ball?

15. vivianrush

6/16

16. niksva

P(red or blue) = P(red) + P(blue) plug in the values u got and u will get the required answer.

17. vivianrush

10/16 =5/8

18. niksva
