what is the probability that the first marble is purple and the second is any color except purple.

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && \frac{5}{10} \cdot \frac{3}{9}+\frac{5}{10} \cdot \frac{2}{9} \\ &=& \frac{5}{10} \cdot \left( \frac{3}{9}+ \frac{2}{9} \right) \\ &=& \frac{5}{10} \cdot \frac{5}{9} \\ &=& \frac{25}{90} \\ &=& 0.2\bar{7} \quad (27.\bar{7}\ \%) \\ \hline \end{array}$$
