    Answer:

    0.012

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The chance of pulling a red marble the first time is 2/13.

    The chance of pulling a red marble the second time is 1/12.

    Since the events are independent, you can multiply the two probabilities together:

    2/13 x 1/12

    = 1/78

    = 0.012
