The probability is 10/121

Step-by-step explanation:

In this question, we are tasked with calculating probability.

The probability to be calculated is that we have an ordered selection of picking a red marble after which we pick a yellow marble.

Firstly let us know the total number of marbles we have. That will be 4 + 5 + 2 = 11 marbles

Probability of picking a red marble will be 5/11 while the probability of picking a yellow marble will be 2/11

Now, the probability of picking a red marble before a yellow marble will be mathematically equal to; P(r) * P(y) = 5/11 * 2/11 = 10/121
