A box contains 5 red marbles, 4 green, and 8 blue. Find the probability of pulling two red marbles followed by a green marble if the marbles are pulled from the bag without replacement.


Expert Answer

Step 1

There are total 17 marbles in a box as 5 red + 4 green + 8 blue.


Now consider the following values:


A = {first pull a red marble without replacement}


B = {second pull a red marble without replacement}


C = {third pull a green marble without replacement}


Therefore, probability that first marble drawn is red is...

5 4 4
P(A followed by B followed by C);
17 16 15
