Let E1: the ball is drawn from the first bag,
      E2: the ball is drawn from the second bag
      A: both the balls drawn are red
Here P\left ( E_{1} \right )= P\left ( E_{2} \right )= \frac{1}{2}\; \; P\left ( \frac{A}{E_{1}} \right )= \frac{5}{8}\times \frac{4}{7}= \frac{20}{56}
       P(\frac{A}{E_{2}})= \frac{2}{8}\times \frac{1}{7}= \frac{2}{56}
By Baye's theorem P\left ( \frac{E_{1}}{A} \right )= \frac{P\left ( E_{1} \right )P\left ( \frac{A}{E_{1}} \right )}{P\left ( E_{1} \right )P\left ( \frac{A}{E_{1}} \right )+P\left ( E_{2} \right )P\left ( \frac{A}{E_{2}} \right )}
\Rightarrow P\left ( \frac{E_{1}}{A} \right )= \frac{\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{20}{56}}{\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{20}{56}+\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{2}{56}}= \frac{10}{11}
