These 20 discs are in bag
11, 11, 11, 11
22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22
33, 33, 33, 33, 33, 33, 33
44, 44, 44
Two of the discs are taken at random from the bag
Work out the probability that the first disc has a smaller number than the second disc

I'm not entirely sure either tbh lmao but I think it's solvable once you draw a tree diagram. Maybe try that?

Can you post a pic of it?
After you draw one I think it should be fairly easy to solve? You just add the probabilities of when the first disc has a smaller probability than the second I think.

i think I have the answer! i believe its
(38.1/4 X 16/19) + (6/20 X 10/19) + (7/20 X 3/19) which gives you 29/76 and 29/76 as a % is 38.1%
