    suppose you have a box with a red and b green balls. you grab k balls the prob you get r red and g green balls (r+g=k) is given by \[\frac{ _aC_r _bC_g}{_{(a+b)}C_k}\]

    i think it would be easier if we dont use combinations, zarkon.. it would be easier if if we do it like this.. for 1 green ball. 4/16.. 1 blue ball after 1 green ball hass been selected.. 7/15. and then multiply them.. whats your view?

    which would equal 14/60 right because you dont change the denominator right or would it be 14/120

    P(blue first, then green) = P(blue) x P(green after drawing a blue) = 7/16 x 4/(16-1) = a P(green first, then blue) = P(green) x P(blue after drawing a green) = 4/16 x 7/(16-1) = b P(1 blue and 1 green) =P(blue first, then green) + P(green first, then blue) = a + b

    2 red, similar, despite the order of picking a red doesn't matter this time, since you don't the red ones are identical
