    Answer:

    7:9

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Number of red balls = 10

    Number of green balls = 6

    Number of orange balls = 15

    Number of blue balls = 14

    Total numbers of balls =  45

    Probability (odds against the red ball) = P( not red)

    P(not red) = P(green) + P (orange) + P (blue)————————-  (1)

    P (green) = 6/45

    P ( orange) =15/45

    P (blue)  = 14/45

    Substituting in (1)

    P(not red) = 6/45 + 15/45+14/45

                    =  35/45

                    =  7/9

                    7:9
