Picture a candy bowl. All the candy inside it is the same size. There are 6 cherry candies, 11 raspberry candies, 99 lemon candies, and 16 orange candies. If you reach in for one piece with your eyes closed, what are the chances of getting a raspberry candy?

It should be:

132 total pieces
since 11 exist for raspberry, then
11/132 = 1/12
