At a game booth, a student gets a box of candy as the prize for winning a game. The boxes come in four colors: white, red, green, and blue. There are 6 boxes of each color. All the boxes are equally likely to be given away as prizes. Which expression shows the probability of the first winner receiving a white box and the second winner also receiving a box of the same color? 6 over 24 multiplied by 6 over 23 6 over 24 multiplied by 5 over 23 6 over 24 plus 5 over 23 6 over 24 plus 6 over 23

    if there are 6 boxes per color and 4 colors, do 6*4 to get your denominator for your first fraction
