# A bag contains 6 red balls and some blue balls. If the probability of drawing a blue ball from the bag is twice that of a red ball, find the number of blue balls in the bag.

Given: number of red balls = 6

Let number of blue balls be x

Total number of possible outcomes, n(S) = 6 + x

Number of favorable outcomes = n(E) P(blue ball) = 2P(red ball) x = 12

number of blue balls = 12
