# Marbles Math Question Help

so I could calculate it myself.If any details are missing from the original question, Ill add it on. Thanks!-i assume there are a very large # of marbles,P[draw a yellow marble] = 0.......
What's the probability of picking a yellow marble three times in a row out of a bag of blue marbles? The total percentage of yellow marbles in the bag is 35.52%.

I'm horrible at math and I doubt I'll be able to calculate the correct answer on my own. I expect the answer would look something like "___ out of ___." An added bonus would be if you could briefly explain how you reached the answer, so I could calculate it myself.

If any details are missing from the original question, I'll add it on. Thanks!

i assume there are a very large # of marbles, so probabilities don't change from draw to draw

P[draw a yellow marble] = 0.3552
using the multiplicative principle,
P[draw 3 yellow marbles] = 0.3552 *0.3552 *0.3552
= 0.0448 or 4.48%
