Answer:52/70

Step-by-step explanation:Answer: 13/20

Step-by-step explanation:

Total number of beads: 20+14+10+28+8=80

Green beads out of the total 80: 28

Non-green beads out of the total 80: 80-28=52

The probability of Christina choosing a bead that is not green is the number if non-green beads divided by the total number of beads, so 52/80, which simplifies to 13/20
