Can someone please help me?

Suppose you have 10 white balls, 10 black balls, and 2 baskets. You may place some of the balls into one basket and the remaining balls into the other basket however you wish. After you are done, your friend Janelle will flip a fair coin to select one of the baskets, then randomly select one ball from it. If you want to maximize the probability that Janelle will select a white ball, how should you distribute the 20 balls into the 2 baskets? And what is the probability Janelle draws a white ball?
