A bucket contains 4 red, 2 yellow, and 3 green balls. If one ball is taken at random what is the probability that is is red or green
I had 4/9 times 3/9 which equals 4/27 as my answer

I just need someone to make sure these are correct

    I agree with your first answer.

    Since there is only one draw in your second question, and 7/9 of the balls are red OR green, it seems toi me that is the answer.
