Initially there are 12 marbles.  and 2 of those are blue.

 

so the chance of choosing a blue one is  2/12 

 

That marble is not put back so there are now 11 marbles and only 1 of them is blue.  So the chance of choosing a blue one this time will be 1/11

 

The chance of getting 2 blue marbles is     \(\frac{2}{12}\times \frac{1}{11}=\frac{1}{66}\)
