A basket contains 11 pieces of fruit: 4 apples, 5 oranges, and 2 bananas. Jonas takes a piece of fruit at random from the basket, and then Beth takes a piece at random. What is the probability that Jonas will get an orange and Beth will get an apple?

  • algebra -

    The probability that Jonas gets an orange is 5/11. Given that Jonas gets an orange, the probability that Beth gets an apple is 4/10. So the probability that Jonas gets an orange and Beth gets an apple is (5/11)*(4/10).
