but the marbles that you choose need to be different colors, so the choices are 47/132, 47/30, 47/66, 1/6, and 2/3

u have to solve it this way: if green and yellow marbles are drawn, then it can be done in 3*4 ways=12 ways similarly: yellow, red---------20 green, red---------15 total 12+20+15 ways=47 ways u have to select 2 marbles from 12, so it can be done in 12C2=66 ways.. so, probability: 47/66
