If a box of chocolates contains 3 caramels, 3 nut clusters, and 5 raspberry creams, which of the following fractions represents the chance of picking a caramel on the first try?

\(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation

First you need to figure out the number of possible ways to pick a caramel. There are 3 caramels, so there are 3 possibilities for picking one. This is the numerator of the probability. 

Now you need the total number of possibilities of any kind. There are a total of 11 chocolates, so that becomes your denominator.
