Maggie has 7 tiles with pictures of plants and 2 tiles with pictures of animals. Maggie keeps all the tiles on a mat with the pictures hidden and mixes them up. She then turns one tile face up and finds the picture of a plant on it. She removes this tile from the mat and turns over another tile without looking. What is the probability that the second tile that Maggie turns over has a plant on it?

a. 22.2% 

b.28.6% 

c.65.0% 

d.75.0%

After removing one plant tile there is   6 plant tiles and 2 animal tiles left   ( total 8 tiles left)

 

6 out of 8 are plant tiles 

       6/8 = 75 % chance of plant tile
