A box contains two white, two red, and two blue poker chips. Two chips are randomly chosen without replacement, and their colors are noted. Define the following events:

A) Both chips are of the same color

B)Both chips are red

C)At least one chip is red or white

Find P(A/B), P(B/A^c), P(B/C), P(A/C), P(C/A^c)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

A) So at the start there are 6 chips, probability of pulling out the first one of any color would be 6/6 then there is one less in the bag but we now need the same color as we hauled out the first time. So if you have a red one out for example there are 5 chips left and only one is red so is it 1/5 chance?
