Homework Help: Probability help!?

Posted by Jose on Sunday, March 4, 2007 at 12:10pm.

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.

i realy need help in my math .
