MEDAL!!! Your wife has asked you to pick up a bottle of her favorite shampoo. When you get to the store, you can't remember which brand she uses. There are 9 shampoo brands on the shelf. If you select 1, what is the probability you get the right shampoo? Of the 9 bottles, 4 are blue, 3 are white, and 2 are red. You remember that your wife's shampoo comes in a blue bottle. What is the probability that you get the right bottle with this additional information?

Selecting 1 from the 9 is 1:9 probability 1/9, or 11% chance, the blue would be 1:4 or 25% chance, but for sure if he don't get the correct one, he has a 100% chance of getting yelled at when he gets home..
