anyone help! :)
Shyla used a probability simulator to pull 3 colored marbles from a bag and flip a coin 50 times. The results are shown in the tables below:
Color of Marble Number of Times Rolled
Blue 16
Green 20
Yellow 14
Heads Tails
18 32
Using Shyla's simulation, what is the probability of pulling a blue marble and the coin landing tails up?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1chance of pulling a blue marble is 16/50 and chance of a coin landing tails up is 32/50. I think to finish the problem it would be 16/50*32/50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you are correct except for this question you dont have to reduce your answer to as far as you did you can leave it as 512/2500

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which i believe in probability you are not supposed to reduce but i could be wrong and np :)
