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 nonred = 8/11, second nonred = 7/10.
The probability of all events occurring is found by multiplying the individual probabilities.
