The probability of randomly selecting a red marble can be calculated by dividing the number of red marbles by the total number of marbles in the jar.

Probability of selecting a red marble = Number of red marbles / Total number of marbles

Probability of selecting a red marble = 27 / 100

Probability of selecting a red marble = 0.27 or 27%.
