A box contains 3 red, 2 green, and 4 white candies.

Carmen picked one candy, found it was white, and ate it.

She picked a second candy at random, found it was red, and ate it.

Carmen picked a third candy at random.

a) Which colour is the third candy most likely to be? Explain.

b) Write the probability that the third candy will be the colour named in

part a. Use a ratio, fraction, and percent to write the probability

.

c) What is the probability that the candy will not be the colour named

in part a?

a) _{ White, because there are more white candies that the other colours:}

_{2 red, 2 green , 3 white.}

b) \(probability= {{3} \over 7}\)

\(Ratio= 3:7\)

\(percentage = 42.857\)

c) \(probability= {{4} \over 7}\)

\(percentage = {57.1428}\)
