A bag contains 9 red chips and 12 blue chips. Two chips are selected randomly without replacement from the bag. What is the probability that the two chips are the same color?
That would be the probability of two reds PLUS the probability of two blues.
The probability of two reds is
(9/21)*(8/20) = 72/420
The probability of two blues is
(12/21)*(11/20) = 132/420.
The sum is 204/420 = 51/105 = 45.87%
