Probability help!?
posted by Jose on .
I have a bag of 20 m&m's. 6 are red; 7 are blue; 4 are green; 3 are yellow. if I took one out, what is the probability of picking yellow??? Help. t.y.
Pr yellow= waystogetyellow/total= 3/20
Is there a way to illustrate this? thank you. (for some reason, I am having a hard time with this.) I am in the 5th grade.
Whichever color you are seeking, its probability the number of candies of that color divided by the total number of candies.
Yellow = 3/20 = 15%
Red = 6/20 = 30%
Blue = 7/20 = 35%
Green = 4/20 = 20%
If the calculations are right, they all should add up to 100%.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
