A bag contains 2 green marbles and 3 white marbles. One marble is drawn at random and not replaced.

Then a second marble is drawn. What is the probability that the first marble is white and the second one

is green?

= (3/5)(2/4) = 3/10

Can you tell where my numbers came from ?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 11:22pmsince you kept the first marble drawn, there are now only 4 left, but the 2 greens are still in there

so 2/4 for the greens
