    You have a 25%, or 1/4 chance that you will choose a yellow paper clip.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1) First, you want to find the total number of paper clips.

    6 + 3 + 4 + 2 + 5 = 20 total paper clips

    This is your denominator.

    2) From the problem, we can understand that there are 5 yellow paper clips.

    This is your numerator.

    3) From the numerator and denominator we have from above, your fraction is 5/20.

    4) This can be simplified into 1/4, which is 25%.
