# What is the probability that both balls are red given that the first ball you drew was red?

Assume that each bag contains 5 balls. Bag a contains 4 red and 1 white, while bag b contains 1 red, 1 white, and 3 blue. You randomly select one ball from bag a, note the color, and place the ball in bag b. You then select a ball from bag b at random and make note of its color.
