Assume that the box contains 9 balls:
1 red, 2 blue, and 6 yellow. As in the text, you draw one
ball, note its color, and if it is yellow replace it. If it is not yellow
you do not replace it. You then draw a second ball and note its color.
1) What is the probability that the second ball drawn is yellow?

(2) What is the probability that the second ball drawn is red?
