The probability of selecting nut chocolate followed by a caramel chocolate is

=(15/38)(13/39)

=15/144

=.1315

Step-by-step explanation

The probability of selecting first piece as a nut chocolate is

Nut chocolate = 16

total chocolates = 39

probability of  nut chocolate=16/39

The probability of selecting first piece as a nut chocolate is 15 out of 38

=15/ 38

probability of caramel chocolate = 13/39

then 15/38 th time you select a nut chocolate by caramel

So

=(15/38)(13/39)

=15/144

=.1315
