This incomplete chart shows the number of various Christmas ornaments. There are 19 red ornaments and 49 green ornaments. Each color comes in large or small. The number of large green ornaments is twice the number of large red ornaments. The number of small green ornaments is three times the number of small red ornaments. If someone selects a red ornament at random, what is the probability that it will be large?

12/27/2022 Crime Caper
Four known criminals were brought in for questioning about a house burglary. One and only one of them is guilty of the crime. The criminals make these eight statements about the burglary:
Daniel: “I’m innocent. I didn’t do the burglary.”
Muffy: “I’m innocent. Daniel did the burglary.”
Vincent: “I’m innocent. Either Muffy or Wanda did the burglary.”
Wanda: “I’m innocent. Vincent is the culprit.”
If four of these eight statements are true and four are false, who committed the burglary?
