A jar contains 2 orange balls, 5 black balls, and 3 pink balls.
Event A = drawing a black ball on the first draw
Event B = drawing a pink ball on the second draw
If two balls are drawn from the jar, one after the other without replacement, what is P(A and B) expressed in simplest form?

can someone show me a quick, step-by-step on how to do this? thank you! :)
