Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are 9 yellow marbles.

So, number of favorable outcomes = 9

Total number of marbles = 5 + 4 + 7 + 9 = 25

So, total number of outcomes = 25


Probability of drawing a yellow marble 

= Number of favorable outcomes / Total number of outcomes

= 9/25
