The number of chips of different colors in Vicky's bag is shown below:
5 blue chips
11 pink chips
9 white chips
Vicky takes out a chip from the bag randomly without looking. She replaces the chip and then takes out another chip from the bag. What is the probability that Vicky takes out a blue chip in both draws?
5/25 * 5/25 = 25/625
5/25 + 5/25 = 10/25
5/25 * 4/24 = 20/600
5/25 + 4/24 = 220/600

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, so to find the probability of 2 blue chips, we multiply (5/25) * (5/25) which is our answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you don't have to reduce the fraction 5/25 * 5/25 = (5*5)/(25*25) = ?
