I will select two balls from the bucket but with two different ways. Either one ball at a time or graping them together with one effort. Is the probability of having one red and one green ball the same for the two cases?

One ball at a time Order matters. Red-Red = $\displaystyle \frac{n(n-1)}{n+m(n+m-1)}$ Red-Green = Green-Red = $\displaystyle \frac{mn}{(n+m)(n+m-1)}$ Green-Green = $\displaystyle \frac{m(m-1)}{(n+m)(n+m-1)}$ 2. Two Together Red-Red = $\displaystyle \frac{n^2}{(n+m)^2}$ Green-Green = $\displaystyle \frac{m^2}{(n+m)^2}$ Red-Green = $\displaystyle \frac{2mn}{(n+m)^2}$ Tags balls, buckets, probability, selecting ,
