**MathMate**, Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 6:40amFor the first pick, we need a green out of 8 balls. For the second pick, we need a yellow out of 7 balls. For the last pick, we need a red out of 6 balls.

By the multiplication rule, the probability is

P(G,Y,R)=(1/8)(1/7)(1/6)

I'll leave it to you to do the arithmetic.
