Luigi ate one red lolipop. So there is now 3 red and 6 orange lolipops, this means that there is a 3 out of 9 chances or 33% chance that the next lolipop will be red.

Answer:1/3

Step-by-step explanation:Since Luigi removed a red lollipop from the bag, there are only 3 red lollipops left in the bag. Compare that amount to the total amount of lollipops (3+6=9).

3 red lollipops/ 9 total lollipops = 1/3
