Seven green marbles and three red marbles are randomly placed in Box A and in Box B. Box A holds 4 marbles, while Box B holds 6. What is the probability that Box A has at least 2 green marbles?

We can just list them , box A first, then Box B

GGGG GGGRRR

GGGR GGGGRR

GGRR GGGGGR

GRRR GGGGGG

Since the order does not matter, that is all

of these have 2 or more R's in boxA

so prob = 2/4 = 1/2

**Reiny**, Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 11:39amIt asked for at least 2 G's in A, should read more carefully.

so prob of 2 or more G's in box A is 3/4
