    If there are ten marbles in a bag, then that means each marble has a 10% chance of getting picked. That means that there is 1 red marble and 6 yellow marbles, adding up to 7 total marbles. 7 total marbles means that there is a 70% of picking a yellow or a red marble. Since it is out of 100%, I would subtract 70% from 100%, which is 30%. So this means that there is a 30% chance that an orange marble will get picked. The probability of picking an orange marble is unlikely, since 30% is less than half and close to 0.

    I agree with everything but `The probability of picking an orange marble is unlikely, since 30% is less than half and close to 0.` 30% isn't that small really. 3/10 is still a good chance of picking an orange marble.

    Sure yellow is the most likely, but orange is still likely

    red is the least likely to happen (but just like orange, still likely)

    @muscrat123 it won't show the video since I need to login, but don't worry about it. You're probably right if the teacher says to follow specific instructions

    btw orange is 30% and is less than 50% so its less likely to be picked
