    So the first time we choose a coin the probability that it will be a dime is 9/25 correct?

    ya there are 25 coins altogether and 9 dimes so the probability that it will be a dime is dimes/total amt of coins = 9/25

    so there are 24 coins and 8 dimes so the probabiity we will choose a dime is 8/24

    So altogether the probability that we will choose 2 dimes is 9/25*8/24

    so the answer would be 3/25, right?
