Question

You have a jar of 20 jellybeans with 4 red beans, and you take out 1 red jellybean. Now, after taking out this bean, what is the new probability that you will pick a red jellybean out of the jar?

## Answers ( )

Answer:

The new probability is 3/19

Step-by-step explanation:

Before taking out a red bean, we have 20 total bean and and just 4 red beans

Now after taking away one red bean, we will be left with 19 total bean and 3 red bean

The probability of picking a red bean now will be new number of red bean/ New total number of beans

Mathematically that will be 3/19
