## 2/6

Step-by-step explanation:

## ______hope it helps________

12/49 chance that they are both white

Step-by-step explanation:

We have 2 events going on:

The first bag that contains: 3 white, 4 red

The second bag that contains: 4 white, 3 red

First let’s find the probability of picking a white ball from each individual bag (not combing the chances yet):

For the 1st bag, there are 3 white balls out of 7 balls (add 3 and 4).

That means there’s a 3/7 chance you’ll get a white ball from the 1st bag.

For the 2nd bag, there are 4 white balls out of 7 balls (add 4 and 3).

That means there’s a 4/7 chance you’ll get a white ball from the 2nd bag.

To find the probability of getting both white from both of the bags, multiply 3/7 & 4/7:

3/7 * 4/7 = 12/49
