**MathMate**, Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 7:36amThe two draws are independent.

So the probability of getting a yellow in both bags is the product of the probability of getting a yellow in each bag.

P1(Y)=3/12

P2(Y)=5/15

So

P(Y,Y)=P1(Y)*P2(Y)

**Andrew**, Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 3:48pmThe question asks the opposite... not yellow.

so 9/12 * 10/15 = .75 * .666 = 50%
