Hello, my name is Dan.
I will do my best to help you, the only stupid question is the unasked one.

Try selecting one and right clicking it, it will give you a contextual menu with a Trashcan in it.Click that, it will then ask how deleted you want it to be. Just from the album or permanently.

This is from the latest version of iPhoto,

That should get rid of it.

Or you can dig into the iPhoto Library/Originals, locate the photos (may be difficult as the file names may not be as you expect) and delete them there, they will be gone for sure then.

Does that help?

I'm working with a MacBook Pro, I don't have the capability of a right click. Please be detailed!

Yes you do. It is Control Click. Press and hold the Control key and click, same thing as a right button on a mouse.
You have all mouse functions but several need a key press with it.
