Prob [All marbles are red] = 0.0686 ;

Prob [None marble is red] = 0.1470

Step-by-step explanation:

Prob [All marbles are red] :-

= Prob(1st red marble & 2nd red marble & 3rd red marble)

= 8/18 x 7/17 x 6/16

= 0.0686

Prob [None marble is red] :-

= Prob (1st marble not red & 2nd marble not red & 3rd marble not red)

= 10/18 x 9/17 x 8/16

= 0.1470
