The power goes out as Sandra is trying to get dressed. If she has 4 white t-shirts and 10 colored t-shirts in her drawer, is it likely that she will pick a colored t-shirt in the dark? What is the probability that she will pick a colored t-shirt? Explain your answers.

I feel that it is likely that she will pick a colored t-shirt because there are 10 that are colored out of 14 t-shirts total. The probability I think is 5/7-Is this right?
