Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are 25 marbles in the bag. The probability of drawing a blue marble first is 7/25. Having drawn a blue marble there are 24 marbles left, and the probability of drawing a yellow marble second is 9/24. Now there are 23 marbles and the probability of drawing a red marble next is 4/23. The required probability is therefore the product of the three values of probability: \[\large P(blue,\ yellow,\ red)=\frac{7\times9\times4}{25\times24\times23}\]
