    There are 3 gala out of 5 apples, the 2 gala out of 4 apples. So to find the probability you must solve this 3/5x2/4=???

    Yes, that happened because when you took one gala from the set it remains 2 out four. But in that set only have two Macintosh out of 4. Then, it turns out that the probability for both is the same
