Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. When Eric draws the first marble, what's the probability that it will be yellow?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct. Very good. Now Eric puts the marble back in the bowl so there's still 4 yellow and 3 red marbles in the bowl. So it's just like we're back at the beginning again. Now, Eric draws another marble. What is the probability it will be red?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good. In probability, these events are called independent events because one draw has no effect on the next one (Eric puts the marble back in the bowl). The total probability of drawing 1 yellow and 2 red is the product of the three individual probabilities, i.e.\[P = \frac{ 4 }{ 7 } \times \frac{ 3 }{ 7 } \times \frac{ 3 }{ 7 }\]What do you get?
