First black marble = 5/13, second = 4/12, third = 3/11, fourth = 2/10.

The probability of all events occurring is found by multiplying the individual probabilities.

First blue = 5/13, second = 4/12, first non-red = 8/11, second non-red = 7/10.

The probability of all events occurring is found by multiplying the individual probabilities.
