  • Probabilities -

    This conditional probability
    the formula is
    P(A│B), read the prob of A given B
    = P(A and B)/P(B)

    in your case Prob(A) is Prob(green)
    B is "not red or blue"

    so find Prob(green AND "not red or blue")
    and Prob(not red or blue) and sub into the formula
