  1. The probability of getting a yellow ball on the first pick = 2/9. Without replacement, the probability of getting the second yellow ball = 1/8.

    To find the probability of both or all events occurring, multiply the probabilities of the individual events.

    I don't know how to get the last part (standard deviation).
