Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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.
