You have 5+2+3+4+2 = 16 marbles. How many of them are not yellow? That number/total number of marbles is the answer.

You can think of this batch of marbles as: 2 yellow and (5 + 3 + 4 + 2 = 14) "non-yellow" There are a total of 2 + 14 = 16 marbles. The probability of a "non-yellow" draw is: (# of non-yellows)/(# of totals marbles) These # are given earlier in thi reply.

  • anonymous
the choices are 8/9 or 9/16, 7/8, 3/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's good, because the correct choice is indeed among them. Just follow what I helped you with and you'll have no problem.

I did that earlier added all the numbers then divided by 5 ?

How many for: # of non-yellows? Hint: it's already worked out in my first reply.

(5 + 3 + 4 + 2 = 14) "non-yellow"

14

Right. 14/16 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good. There are a total of 2 + 14 = 16 marbles. So, 14/16
anonymous
  • anonymous
right @whpalmer4 and @tcarroll010
anonymous
  • anonymous
so I simplify?
anonymous
  • anonymous
out of my choices it looks like I need too
anonymous
  • anonymous
And of course, once you simplify 14/16, you get . . . . what?
whpalmer4
  • whpalmer4
If you don't see 14/16 among the answer choices, reducing the fraction would be a good thing to try...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hint: divide numerator and denominator by 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
hahah yes of course guys sorry
anonymous

np. Good problem and help from everyone all around.

One last point — I trust this illustrates the importance of careful reading of the problem...
