8th Math - Probability

A basket contains 5 green lollipops, 12 red lollipops, and 7 orange lollipops. When a lollipop is taken from the basket, it is not replaced. What is P(orange, then orange)?

I know the answer. It's 42/552.

But HOW do I figure this out? I can do the first p(orange) but if it's not replaced, how do I do I figure out orange again? Thanks!

    Total=24 p(orange,then orange)=7/24*6/23 =42/552 this is bcus the no of orange is 7 & when one of it is taking out 6 will remain & the total no will reduce to 23.
