    Chicken : Hamburger : Fish

    Ball : Parachute : Frisbee

    2 chicken, 1 fish ; 1 fish, 1hamburger.

    Your probability is

    2 : 1 : 1

    your probability of getting a ball is 2 out of 4 items,

    so it is 1/2

    2/3 (number of chicken and fish meals over total) x1/2 (number of balls over total. It actually is 2/4 but is reduce.) =2/6 1/3

    What you need to do is find the probability of each event by putting the favorable outcome over the total outcomes and multiply them together.

    The answer is 1/3.
