```										HI Swetha,
The box  has 4 rotten mangoes and 6 good mangoes.
Now probability of selecting one good mango from the box is number of good mangoes by total number of mangoes.
that is P1 =  6 / 10.
After selecting one good mango, we have 9 mangoes left. 4 are rotten and 5 are good mangoes.
Now probability of selecting one good mango is 5/9.
Thus P2 = 5/9
Total probability P = P1*P2 =  (6/10) * (5/9)

```										Probability that both mango is rotton = 4c2/10c2 [ i.e. 4 are rotton u choose any two of them in 4c2 ways]Probability that atleast of of them is good = Total [since total probability is 1]  - Probability that both mango is rotton                                                            = 1 - 4c2/10c2                                                             = 13/15Probability that both mango is good = 10 - 4 = 6 choose any 2 mango out of these 6 = 6c2/ 10c2 =1/3So required probability [ Both are good ] =   15/13 * 1/3                                                           = 5/13 [BAYES THEOREM p(B/A) = p(A intersection B) /P(A) ]
