A bag contains 10 marbles of the same size that are red, yellow, and orange. The probability of picking a red marble is 10%. The probability of picking a yellow marble is 60%. Determine the probability of picking an orange marble from the bag and then classify the probability of picking an orange marble as likely or not likely to occur.

    There are only 3 marble colors - red, yellow and orange

    Hint: the sum of your probabilities has to be equal to 1

    So, to find out how much for orange we have to do 100% - probability for both red and yellow

    Or, if you want to simplify the percents to decimal, you can do as Michele said :)

    hint: we have top solve this equation: \[x + 60 + 10 = 100\] where x is the requested probability

    if the total marbles(10) = 100%, then 1% = 10/100 = 0.1 and 10% are red marbles = 10 x 0.1 and 60% are yellow= 60 x 0.1 then that leaves 30% for the yellow marbles

    sorry for the orange marbles (30%)

    P(red marble) = 1/10 x 100 = 10% P(yellow marble) = 6/10 x100 = 60% P(orange marble)= 3/10 x100 = 30%
