Two balls are drawn at random with replacement from a box containing 10 black and 8 red balls.

Total balls =18

Black balls = 10

Red balls = 8

The probability of getting a red ball in first draw

$=\frac{8}{18}=\frac{4}{9}$

The ball is repleced after drawing first ball.

The probability of getting a red ball in second draw
