    the probability is 8/15 depending on whether the problem counts the drawing one out of the bag as one gone. Leaving the first one drawn, the probability would be 3/5.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    number of action movies/total number of movies = 9/15=3/5

    3/5 is the probability of drawing an action movie from the bag. However, since you just drew one out, the fraction changes to 8/15.
