Answer:

1/25 ; 3/20 ; 3/50

Step-by-step explanation:

Total number of stickers :

(10 + 15 + 25) = 50 stickers

Probability = required outcome / Total possible outcomes

a. Selecting blue and blue stickers

P(First blue) = 10/50 = 1/5

P(second blue) = 10/50 = 1/5

1/5 * 1/5 = 1 / 25

b. Selecting one red sticker and then one orange sticker

P(First red) = 15/50 = 3/10

P(second orange) = 25/50 = 1/2

3/10 * 1/2 = 3 /20

Selecting one red sticker and then one blue sticker

P(First red) = 15/50 = 3/10

P(second blue) = 10/50 = 1/5

3/10 * 1/5 = 3 / 50
