Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1K so  Welcome to multiplication. We do this because the events are not reliant on each other, the marble is replaced each time. Multiply the following together  \[\frac{ 5 }{ 25 } x \frac{ 4 }{ 25 } x \frac{ 9 }{ 25 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yup! Can you divide 3125 by any of the following  6  ? 3  ? 2  ? If yes, which one? If not, then 36/3125 is your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There shouldn't be. They're all mutually exclusive events since the marble is replaced.
