We need to find out the probability of either 2 blue balls or 2 red balls.

Each of the scenarios has 3 possibilities.

That is, 2 red balls can be obtained by RRB, RBR, BRR

2 blue balls can be obtained by BBR, BRB, RBB

Probability of 2 red balls = 2/10 x 1/9 x 8/8 x 3 = 42/720

Probability of 2 red balls = 8/10 x 7/9 x 2/8 x 3 = 336/720

Probability of 2 balls being the same colour = 42/720 + 336/720 = 384/720 = 8/15
