Ring Around the Marbles

A boy has four red marbles and eight blue marbles. He arranges his twelve marbles randomly, in a ring. What is the probability that no two red marbles are adjacent?


  1. I'll give you a hint, since no one's answered: It's close to 1/2.

  2. no chance... ring has no side at all
