**JJ**, Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 4:11pmThere are 16 cookies in the jar,

Since there are 4 choc chips you have 4/16 or 1/4 to get a choc chip

You have to multiply 1/4 times the chance of getting a second choc. chip.

Since you aren't replacing, you now have 3/15 chances since you have to assume you got the choc. chip the first time and there were only 15 cookies left.

Multiply 1/4 times 1/5.
