Ken is about to eat a bag of M&M's on the 4th of July. The number of each color M&M is listed below.
Green 11
Red 8
Yellow 13
Tan 7
Brown 10
Blue 5
a)If Ken picks the first M&M out of the bag without looking. What is the chance he will pick a brown one to match his eyes?
b)What is the chance his first one will match a color in the America flag?

A.10 to 54 which simplifies to 5 to 27
B.13 to 54 
Number of browns: Nb=10
Total number of M&M : N=11+8+13+7+10+5
Probability of picking a brown = Nb/N
Similar for the colours in the American flag:
Total number of blue & red: Nf=5+8
Probability : Nf/N 
a. 1/10
b. 13/54 
10/54
