The number of chips of different colors in Midge's bag is shown below: 6 red chips 7 green chips 12 yellow chips Midge takes out a chip from the bag randomly without looking. She replaces the chip and then takes out another chip from the bag. What is the probability that Midge takes out a red chip in both draws? 6 over 25 multiplied by 5 over 24 equal 30 over 600 6 over 25 multiplied by 6 over 25 equal 36 over 625 6 over 25 plus 5 over 24 equal 269 over 600 6 over 25 plus 6 over 25 equal 12 over 25

    both events are independent. The probability of a single event is: favorable outcomes/ possible outcomes= 6/25 so the requested probability, is: (6/25)*(6/25)=...?

    Hint: we have to compute the multiplication of the single probabilities
