A box contains 1 green, 2 yellow, and 3 red marbles. Two marbles are drawn at random without replacement. What are the odds of each event occurring?
1. Drawing to different colours
I am kind of confused on how to start this problem.

I am kind of confused on how to start this problem.
I do not deal with odds.
But I can give the probabilities.
$\displaystyle \mathcal{P}(\{G,Y\})=2\left(\frac{1}{6}\cdot\frac{ 2}{5}\right)~,$ $\displaystyle \mathcal{P}(\{G,R\})=2\left(\frac{1}{6}\cdot\frac{ 3}{5}\right)~,~\&~,$ $\displaystyle \mathcal{P}(\{R,Y\})=2\left(\frac{3}{6}\cdot\frac{ 2}{5}\right)~$.
To have two different colours, it must be one of those three.
What is the answer?
