The three cards are mixed up in a hat, and one card is randomly selected and placed down on the ground. If the upper side of the chosen card is colored green7 What is the probability that the other side is colored blue? {’[8G a 63 (f Pm) {9(8006) M V. 19(GQGG) + P(Go6&)+ F (0:155) NCJI’SQ'WQ Problem 2 (35 points) Answer the following questions: a.
