**MathMate**, Friday, March 4, 2011 at 11:47amThere are two mutually exclusive cases:

case 1: the first marble is green, then there are*two*outcomes for the second marble (red or blue).

case 2: the first marble is not green

then there are*two*possible outcomes for the first marble (R or B), and 3 possible outcomes for the second (R, G or B), making a total of 6 outcomes by the multiplication rule.

By the rule of addition, we add the outcomes of cases 1 and 2 to get

total outcomes = 2+6 = 8.
