in a bag there are 3 different marble colors. what is the minimum marble does one have to remove in order to get 3 marble of the same color? * i know this is a probability question but since it does not give you the individual amount i don't think i can get an answer

The minimum (least) is 3, the maximum (most) is something different. If the first three are different, the fourth will be a duplicate of one of these. If the next two duplicate the other colors, the following marble will give you 3 of the same color.
