Bag 1 has 5 red and 6 blue marbles.

Bag 2 has 20 green and 5 red marbles.

What is the probability of drawing a red marble out of Bag 2, given that you drew a red marble out of Bag 1?

It makes no difference what color she drew from Bag 1.

**MathMate**, Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 10:10pmP(R1)=5/11

P(R2)=5/25

Since the drawing of the two bags are independent, we have

P(R1∩R2)=P(R1)*P(R2)

P(R2|R1)=P(R2∩R1)/P(R1)

=P(R1)*P(R2)/P(R1)

=P(R2)

=1/5 as Ms.Sue had it.
