    3/5

  • math -

    there are 10 ways to arrange the 5 socks
    5!/2!3!) = 10

    lets list them in an organized way:
    BBGGG
    BGBGG
    BGGBG
    BGGGB

    GBBGG
    GBGBG
    GBGGB

    GGBBG
    GGBGB
    GGGBB
    Looks like the G is in the 4th spot 6 times
    so the prob is 6/10 = 3/5
