    4/6*4/6 = 16/36 = 4/9?

    The probability of an event happening is: \(p(event) = \dfrac{number ~of~desired~outcomes}{total~ number ~of~ outcomes}\) If two events are independent of each other, the probability of both events happening is the product of their individual probabilities.

    You are correct. \(p(green~ marble) = \dfrac{4}{6} \) \(p(green~marble ~followed~by ~green~marble) = \dfrac{4}{6} \times \dfrac{4}{6} = \dfrac{4}{9} \)
