    It's "there are 6 apples" rather than "you have 6 apples".

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

    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
