Probability of selecting a ball from the first ball if it is a blue ball =  = 0.75

Step-by-step explanation:

Number of blue balls in the first box = 3

Number of blue balls in the second box = 1

Total number of blue balls = 3 + 1

Total number of blue balls = 4

Probability = (Number of possible outcomes)/(Number of total outcomes)

Probability of selecting a ball from the first ball if it is a blue ball = 3/4

Probability of selecting a ball from the first ball if it is a blue ball =  = 0.75
