A basket contains 11 pieces of fruit: 4 apples, 5 oranges, and 2 bananas. Jonas takes a piece of fruit at random from the basket, and then Beth takes a piece at random. What is the probability that Jonas will get an orange and Beth will get an apple?

I will assume that the order of Jonas picking, then Beth is important.
so prob(as stated) = (5/11)(4/10) = 2/11
