Using “and” would change the probability and then the corresponding letter would be wrong

Whew! That took some thinking. Sure sped things up after I looked at the first hint, though.

This was the first of the theorems where I thought the narrative was a complete misdirection. I was thinking, based on the narrative, that the solution involved removing the subtracted marble in a progression down through each marble set. For example, the black marble would disappear from all of the rest of the sets because it gets subtracted in the first. And where you had "either or" choices, you created two possible paths. Ultimately, I figured I'd be left with some set of marbles that would reveal the answer. That would have fit the narrative. I wasn't even close. As soon as I read the beginning of the first hint, I understood that solving the puzzle had absolutely nothing to do with the narrative.

Certes, or you could say 7/13, and therefore 14/26.

This one annoys. The clue I missed was that the number on the marble is a count for how many marbles in the set. I grumble at thee, M!
