Answer:5/18, 13/18Step-by-step explanation:The basic probability of anything is

Specific Outcome / Total OutcomesThe 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

5/18The complement of a probability is 1 minus the original probability, so, it would be

1 – 5/18here getting us13/18as the answer.
