    Car colors

    For a certain style of automobile, the colors blue, white, green, and black are in equal demand. Three successive orders are placed for automobiles of this style. Find the probability that one is blue, white, and green are ordered.

    So we have 4^3 choices or 64.

    Now, how to I find to probability?

    Is this an effort to help or simply a blatant giving a complete solution?
