    A.10 to 54 which simplifies to 5 to 27

    B.13 to 54

  • math 4th grade -

    Number of browns: Nb=10
    Total number of M&M : N=11+8+13+7+10+5
    Probability of picking a brown = Nb/N

    Similar for the colours in the American flag:
    Total number of blue & red: Nf=5+8
    Probability : Nf/N
