    The probability of all events occurring is found by multiplying the probabilities of each events. However, once a particular ball is picked, you have one less ball total and in that category. Because it is multiplication, it does not matter which ball is picked first. For example:

    1. 6/15 * 5/14 * 4/14 = ?

    From this you should be able to do the rest.
