Suppose a bag contains 7 red chips, 8 black chips, and 3 green chips. You draw two chips (without replacement) from the bag. Find the probability that you drew a red chip first and then a black chip second.

  • Statistics -

    Red = 7/18
    Black = 8/17

    To find the probability that both (all) events would occur, multiply the probabilities of the individual events.
