All the boxes are equally likely to be given away as prizes. Which expression shows the probability of the first winner receiving a white box and the second winner also receiving a box of the same color?
6 over 24 multiplied by 6 over 23
6 over 24 multiplied by 5 over 23
6 over 24 plus 5 over 23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06/24 * 5/23 There are 6 white boxes and 24 total boxes, which makes the first half 6/24. After you take away 1 white box, you now have 5 white boxes, and 23 total boxes, hence 5/23
