A bag of assorted candy contains 6 red candies, 5 blue candies, 8 brown candies, 4 green candies, and 7 yellow candies. If 5 candies are drawn from the bag one after another at random and without replacement, what is the probability that the candies selected will be yellow, red, blue, yellow, blue?

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

total no of balls = 6+ 5+8+4+7 = 30

P(Yellow)  =  7C1/ 30C1 = 7/30

P(red) = 6C1/29C1 = 6/29

P(blue) = 5/28

P(yellow) = 6/27 = 2/9

P(blue) = 4/26 = 2/13
