**natttt***Posted on 2011-02-01 19:15:43*

There are 87 marbles in a bag and 68 of them are green. If one marble is chosen, what is the probability that it will be green?

* Solution Divide the number of ways to choose a green marble (68) by the total number of marbles (87)

* 68 ÷ 87 = 0.781609

* Round to the desired precision (e.g. 0.781609 rounded to hundredths is 0.78)

**Probability = total ways a specific outcome will happen / total number of possible outcomes**
