There are 2 opaque bags, each containing red and yellow blocks. Bag 1 contains 3 red blocks and 5 yellow. Bag 2 contains 5 red and 15 yellow. To play the game, you pick a bag and then you pick a block out of the bag without looking. Would a person be more likely to pick a red block if she picks from bag 2 rather than bag 1? Explain
