# A bag contains only red and blue marbles. Yasmine takes one marble at random from the bag. The probability that she takes a red marble is 1 in 5. Yasmine returns the marble to the bag and adds ﬁve more red marbles to the bag. The probability that she takes one red marble at random is now 1 in 3. How many red marbles were originally in the bag?

Answer: There was one red marble because it said that the probability of choosing a red marble is 1/5 so the other marbles are blue.
Hope this helps.

Conrad has a collection of three types of coins: nickels,dimes,and quarters.There are five more nickels than quarters but four times as many dimes as quarters.If the entire collection is worth \$5.85,how many nickels,dimes,and quarters are there?

n=number of nickles
d=number of dimes
q=number of quarters
use cents for everything

total value=585
5n+10d+25q=585
divide everybody by 5 to simplify
n+2d+5q=117

we have

nicles are 5 more than quarters
n=5+q

4 times as many dimes as quarters
d=4 times q
d=4q

sub those in
5+q+2(4q)+5q=117
5+6q+8q=117
5+14q=117
minus 5
14q=112
q=8

sub back
n=5+q
n=5+8
n=13

d=4q
d=4(8)
d=32

13 nickles
32 dimes
8 quarters
divide both sides by 22
