Kevin is trying to find a white sock in a drawer. He has 16 white socks, 4 brown socks, and 6 black socks. What is the probability that he pulls out a black or brown sock, puts it back and then pulls out a white sock?

I THINK this is the answer

 

total socks 26    total black or brown = 10

 

10/26   for a black or brown sock  x  16/26 for a white sock       10/26 x 16/26 = 160/676 = 40/169     (not positive)
