# A box contains six yellow, two red and two blue cubes. What is the probability of picking a yellow cube out of the box?

Jun 30, 2018

$\frac{3}{5}$

#### Explanation:

In all, we have $10$ cubes, or $10$ different possibilities. This will be our denominator.

There are $6$ yellow cubes, and we can pick any one of the six. We have

$P \left(y e l l o w\right) = \frac{6}{10} = \frac{3}{5}$

We have a $3$ in $5$ chance of picking a yellow cube from this box.

Hope this helps!
