Answer:

2/15

Step-by-step explanation:

6 red marbles and 4 yellow marbles = 10 marbles

P ( 1st is yellow) = yellow marbles / total marbles

Answer:2/15

Step-by-step explanation:6 red marbles and 4 yellow marbles = 10 marbles

P ( 1st is yellow) = yellow marbles / total marbles

= 4/10 = 2/5

The marble is not replaced

6 red marbles and 3 yellow marbles = 9 marbles

P ( 2nd is red) = red marbles / total marbles

= 3/9 = 1/3

P ( yellow, red) = 2/5 * 1/3 = 2/15
