    Probability (Choose) question -- marbles in a jar

    Simple highschool question which i really forgot how to solve :(

    "a bowl of 50 marbles, three are blue and the rest are white, if you pick 16 marbles what's the chance you'll get at least one blue one?"

    any help would be appreciated!
