I think that the answer is 6 chances to pull out of 9 candy worms.

its easyyou take 3 away from green and you'll have a 6 out of 12 chance

the answer is 6/12 because 5-2=3 and 3+3=6 and 6+6=12 and there is still 6 blue worms left

the anwser is 6 out of 12 because if you add them at first it would equal 14 and subtract 2 equals 12. and thats the anwser
