Okay so the probability of drawing a blue bean is

8 / 29 = .276

29 is the total number of jelly beans

When we have replacement, we do not reduce the number of total jelly beans, so the probably of drawing blue stays the same.

But to find the probability of drawing a blue two times in a row, we must square the probability .

(.276) • (.276) = 0.076

Your answer is 7.6% !
