Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since she wants two blue marbles her chance of picking a blue marble the second time is also still 3/8 since she put the marble back in after she drew it the first time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So then the overall probabity is just multiplying the two probabilities together 3/8 * 3/8
