## anonymous one year ago A bowl contains candies of the same size in three flavors: orange, strawberry, and pineapple. If the probability of randomly pulling out an orange candy is fraction 2 over 8, and the probability of randomly pulling out a strawberry candy is fraction 3 over 8, what is the probability of randomly pulling out a pineapple candy?

2/8+3/8 =5/8?

2. anonymous

2/8-3/8 = 1/8?

3. anonymous

64% is what i got and ill show you how...

4. anonymous

ok

We need to end up with $$\Large\rm \frac{8}{8}$$ with our three individual odds.

6. anonymous

So far we have $$\Large\rm \frac{2}{8}$$ and $$\Large\rm \frac{3}{8}$$

o then the pineapple would be 3/8

8. anonymous

since they should be equal?
