Hello,

I guess I would start by trying to add the individual

probabilities of drawing 2 reds, 2 browns, 2 yellows,

2 greens, 2 blues, and 2 Orange. The sum of these

probabilities will give you the probability of drawing

2 M&Ms of the same color.

Is this how you proceeded on the exam?

Regards,
