E1 =  selecting box I
E2 = selecting box II
A = geting a red ball from selescted box
p\left ( E_{1} \right )= \frac{1}{2} , \: \: p\left ( E_{1} \right )= \frac{1}{2}
p\left ( \frac{A}{E_{1}} \right )= \frac{3}{9}= \frac{1}{3}
p\left ( \frac{A}{E_{2}} \right )= \frac{p\left ( E_{2} \right )\cdot p\left ( \frac{A}{E_{2}} \right )}{p\left ( E_{1} \right )\cdot p\left ( \frac{A}{E_{1}} \right )+p\left ( E_{2} \right )\cdot p\left ( \frac{A}{E_{2}} \right )}
\frac{3}{5}= \frac{\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{5}{n+5}}{\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{1}{3}+\frac{1}{2}\times \frac{5}{n+5}}
\frac{3}{5}= \frac{15}{n+20}
\left ( n+20 \right )3= 75
3n= 15
n= 3
