    Can someone help me and explain if you use probability Trees to work out this question..
    There are 11 small jars on the table
    3 of the jars contain honey
    8 of the jars contain jam
    Lebron James takes two of the jars at random
    Work out the probability that he takes at least one jar of honey.

    (3/11 x 8/10) + (8/11 x 3/10) = 48/110 =24/55

    You use a tree diagram, for picking the first jar then picking the second (hence the change in the denominator).
