What is the probability of selecting a crayon from the second box? It is 3/12 = 1/4.

Step-by-step explanation:

Answer:If i can get brainliest that would be great

The events ‘select a plain pencil’ and ‘select a color pencil’ are independent. therefore the probability of both occurring is the product of their probabilities:P(plain\ pencil\ and\ color\ pencil)=\frac{5}{10}\times\frac{3}{10}=\frac{3}{20}The answer is 3/20 or 0.15.
