Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In this case where the chips have been replaced, we have the equivalent of 76 identically independent samples. The best estimate of what's in the bag is the same ratio as the samples.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.157+19=76 is the total number of samples in the experiment. You need to find the yellow:green ratio from the results of the sampling, then apply the same ratio to the size of the box to get "the number of green chips in the box"
