  4. Ms. Sue, you did not help at all. I think you are a fake because the real Ms. Sue would've explained the problem and actually help rather than insulting a child. And even if you are the real Ms. Sue, what the hell is your problem, lady?? That is no attitude I have ever seen from an adult and if I had to be 100% honest, I'd say you have the maturity of an 8-year old.

  5. Okay here is how to get the answer, since Ms. Sue literally didn't help at all.
    First, in the question it said that the probability of the white socks are 4/9 and the black socks are 7/18. 7/18 can't be simplified and neither can 4/9, so, we'd have to multiply to get the denominators to be equal. 4/9 x 2 equals 8/18, so our denominators are now the same. Then, add the numerators. 7 + 8= 15. After that, you basically subtract 18-15 to get 3. Now, we have 3/18. Lastly, you simplify 3/18 to get 1/6. Therefore, the probability of the yellow socks is 1/6.
