If two socks are drawn from a drawer containing 6 grey socks and 8 blue socks, then what is the probability of getting a matched pair?

You can get a matched grey pair or a matched blue pair:

 

Grey:  6/14 x 5/13  =  15/91

 

Blue:  8/14 x 7/13  =  4/13

 

Adding these together to get the final answer:  43/91
