    wouldn't it be 3 choose 2 potatoes, there are six ways to arrange the potatos but surely you have to remove the duplication of the 0.25 potatoes?

    Nope, one was below q1 one was above q3. Same probability, different potatoes. So it would be 3 permute 3.

    Did anyone get 5/21 for the probability of picking green, i did it via 2 methods and got the same answer. But i esentially did 5/84/ (probability of rg, rr, yr) as we know there are 47 red.

    I remember 7b was 0.25 plus 0.1151 so was equal to 0.3651 as was probability up to q3- the probability up to 92
