1. ## Probability: A cooler has 24 Greek yogurt containers and 6 vanilla...

A cooler has 24 Greek yogurt containers and 6 vanilla. a person randomly reaches in without looking and picks them out. What is the probability that my friend gets a Greek yogurt and I get a vanilla one. Answer must be percent

2. Question must make sense.

If a person "picks them out", you can pick whatever flavor you like.

I've assumed that two yogurts are picked out, at random. The cooler has 30 yogurts: 24 Greek and 6 Vanilla.

It seems like you're trying to ask how to determine the probability that two randomly-chosen yogurts will be picked in order (your friend's choice [Greek] for the first random pick and your choice [Vanilla] for the second pick).

Is this all correct?

What have you tried or thought about, so far? Have you studied any probability topics?
