Harold sorted his jellybeans into two jars. He likes the purple jellybeans best and the black ones next best, so these are both in one jar. His next favorites are yellow, orange, and white, and these are in another jar. He gave all the rest to his little sister. Harold allows himself to eat only one jellybean from each jar per day. He wears a blindfold when he selects his jellybeans so that he is choosing from each jar at random.

What is the probability that Harold gets one black jellybean and one orange jellybean if the first jar has black and purple jellybeans, and the second jar has yellow, orange, and white jellybeans? Make an area model that represents the probabilities. Homework Help ✎
