Alright, here we go:

To draw two red candies **without** replacement is 13/35, but since drawing the first red candy is 2/5, drawing the second one, must be:

\(\frac{13}{35}\div\frac{2}{5}=\frac{13}{14}\)

\(\frac{2}{5 }x=\frac{13}{35}\\ x=\frac{13}{35}\div \frac{2}{5 }\\ x=\frac{13}{35}\times \frac{5}{2 }\\ x=\frac{13}{14} \)
