a box contains
5 purple marbles,
3 green marbles and
2 orange marbles.
two consecutive draws are made from the box withous replacement of the first draw
what is the probability that the first marble is purple and the second is any color except purple.

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && \frac{5}{10} \cdot \frac{3}{9}+\frac{5}{10} \cdot \frac{2}{9} \\ &=& \frac{5}{10} \cdot \left( \frac{3}{9}+ \frac{2}{9} \right) \\ &=& \frac{5}{10} \cdot \frac{5}{9} \\ &=& \frac{25}{90} \\ &=& 0.2\bar{7} \quad (27.\bar{7}\ \%) \\ \hline \end{array} \)
