Pre Algebra Probability

Each of two urns contains green balls and red balls. urn 1 contains 10 green balls and 14 red balls. urn 2 contains 4 green balls and 11 red balls. if a ball is drawn from each urn what is p(red and red)?

BTW- i really don't know what an urn is, i guess a basket or some small bag, but its not important anyway.here are the answer choices:

a.1/9
b.25/39
c.79/60
d.77/180
i think its b. PLz help when you get the chance and thank you for your time. :)

  1. no, the events are independent, so you multiply the probabities of each event
    urn1, prob(red) = 14/24
    urn2, prob(red) = 11/15

    prob(red and red) = (14/25)(11/15) = 77/180

    btw, an urn is an ancient clay pot or jug.
    e.g. read: Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats

  14. well that escalated quickly

  15. Whether you do the deed of killing or have someone do it it's the same thing. As long as we lean from the bad part of history and move on that is all that matters. We all need to make a better and safer place for our friends and family.
