Probability Rules Three students work independently on a homework problem. The probability that the first student solves the problem is 0.95. The probability that the second student solves the problem is 0.85. The probability that the third student solves the problem is 0.80. What is the probability that all are able to solve the problem? (0.95) (0.85) (0.80) 1 – 0.95 – 0.85 – 0.80 1 - (0.95) (0.85) (0.80) 0.80

Independence Chris is taking two classes this semester, English and American History. The probability that he passes English is 0.50. The probability that he passes American History is 0.40. The probability that he passes both English and American History is 0.60. Are passing English and passing American History independent events? Yes, because the classes are taught by different teachers. Yes, because the classes use different skills. No, because (0.50) (0.40) 0.60. No, because (0.50) (0.40) (0.60).

**Conditional probability**

Within the United States, approximately 11.25% of the population is left-handed. Of the males, 12.6% are left-handed, compared to only 9.9% of the females. Assume the probability of selecting a male is the same as selecting a female. If a person is selected at random, what is the probability that the selected person is a left-handed male?

Independence At a local high school, the probability that a student is absent on any particular day is about However, the probability that a student is absent given it is Friday is Are these two events independent? No, because knowing it is Friday changes the probability of a student being absent. Yes, because being absent has nothing to do with what day of the week it is. Cannot be determined.
