    ways to get two different colors
    rb
    rw
    bw
    br
    wr
    wb

    add the probability of each of these.

    I will do the first two:
    Pr(rb)=3/6*2/5
    Pr(rw)=3/6*1/5

    ok but how do i find the final probability?
    i see how i can get the probability of a certain combination, but i don't understand how i can find that end probability.
