sack: red, blue and green.

There are ten more green

than blue marbles in the

sack. The probability of

drawing a red or blue marble

is one-half. Write and solve

an equation to determine

how many of each color

marble is in the sack

Means that Red+Blue=half * 50 = 25.

Can you do the rest?

**MathMate**, Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 11:25amKnown facts:

Red+Blue+Green=50

Red+Blue=25

Green-Blue=10

Can you juggle a little with the above equations to come up with the answer?
