4. It's "there are 6 apples" rather than "you have 6 apples".
Lets just assume they are someone else's
in which case the answer's 4
6. 138?!

Hence why my question even said "there are 6 apples" that doesn't mean they are yours

And the point of my post was that 'there are six apples' was too vague

Hannah then takes at random another sweet from the bag. She eats the sweet.The probability that Hannah eats two orange sweets is 1/3. Show that n²-n-90=0

10² - 10 - 90 = 0So if Hannah has 10 sweets she has a 6/10 chance of pulling out an orange sweet first time and then a 5/9 chance of pulling one out second time.6/10 X 5/9 = 30/90 or 1/3
