4. There are a total of 10 marbles.
The probability of getting a red marble 5/10 = 1/2.

Then you put that red marble back, so the total is 10 marbles again.
The second try, the probability of getting a blue marble 5/10 = 1/2.

When you want to know what the probability of two events happening one after the other, you multiply each events probability.

The probability of getting a red marble AND THEN a blue marble: 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4
