Meg is giving balloons to some children at a carnival. She has 6 red balloons, 3 blue balloons, and 5 yellow balloons. If Meg selects a balloon randomly without looking, what is the probability that she will give a red balloon to the first child and then a yellow balloon to the second child? 6 over 14 plus 5 over 13 equal to 148 over 182 6 over 14 multiplied by 5 over 13 equal to 30 over 182 6 over 14 multiplied by 5 over 14 equal to 30 over 196 6 over 14 plus 5 over 14 equal to 11 over 14
