    Answer:

    5/18, 13/18

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The basic probability of anything is Specific Outcome / Total Outcomes

    The specific outcome here is pulling a purple marble. We see there are 5 purple marbles therefore there are 5 ways to get them. The total outcomes are the total number of marbles which is 18. Therefore, the answer is 5/18

    The complement of a probability is 1 minus the original probability, so, it would be 1 – 5/18 here getting us 13/18 as the answer.
