c) If two such tanks are independently selected, what is the probability that both hold at most 15 gal?
Okay, I don't really understand this question. Do I need the info from the first two questions? If so, here is what they are:
a) What is the probability that a randomly selected tank will hold at most 14.8 gal?
b) What is the probability that a randomly selected tank will hold between 14.7 and 15.1 gal?
Or are those two questions separate from the third? I vaguely remember doing this last year but I'm lost. I did the first two so no worries about them but the third has me hung up.
