Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you choose the almond cookie for the first time, there are 3 almond cookies and 6 cookies in total so the probability of getting an almond cookie is \(\dfrac{3}{6}\) which can be simplified to \(\dfrac{1}{2}\). when you don't put the almond cookie back, there will be only 2 almond cookies in the box and the total will be one less so the total is 5 and the probability is \(\dfrac{2}{5}\) to find your answer, you have to multiply \(\dfrac{1}{2}*\dfrac{2}{5}\)
