Asked by Josh

There are only yellow and orange sweets in a bag there are n yellow sweets and 25 orange sweets simon takes on at random and eats it he says the probability that it’s yellow is 7/10 show why this is incorrect?

I agree, you need to know the total sweets in the bag. You can express an answer in terms of n, but considering that the problem gives you 7/10 you definitely need more information

You wouldn't be able to answer without knowing the total number of sweets in the bag. There are too many unknown variables in this question. Seems like the question is wrong in itself without guessing.
