    Answer:

    X=10.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    number of red balls = 5

    number of blue balls = x

    n(s)=5+x

    •p(E)=n(e)/n(s)

    p (getting red balls) =5/ 5 + 6

    p (getting blueborne) =x/ 5 + 6

    p (blue balls) = 2x (red balls)

    x / 5 + x = 2× 5 / 5 +x

    the 5+x is equal in both at denominator so it is cancelled.

    then,

    x=2×5

    x=10.

    hence,

    number of balls in the back =10.
