    \[\frac{2}{6}\times \frac{4}{5}+\frac{4}{6}\times \frac{1}{5}\] is one way there are others

    for example you could compute \[\frac{\binom{4}{1}\times \binom{2}{1}}{\binom{6}{2}}\]

    second way is probably snappier, gives \[\frac{8}{15}\] right away

    @satellite73 May be there is a mistake in your second post? Can you please explain why does the second way give the right result?
