Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i hope that is more or less obvious it is the ratio of the number or red marbles to the total number of marbles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not really interested in percents before we compute these numbers we need fractions first, then we can turn the final answer in to a percent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, and how many marbles are there total?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so the probability of picking a red marble first is \[\frac{6}{25}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now the red marble is chosen, and apparently not replaced how many green marbles are there ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and how many marbles are left in the bag?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the probability of picking a green marble once one red one is removes is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to compute the probability that both things occur, multiply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0better known on planet earth as \(\frac{1}{10}\)
