The probability of scoring more than 90% on a certain end of year exam is 0.009.

Given the events are independant, find the probability of two tests scoring more than 90%.

Is it simply 0.009 x 0.009 = 0.000081?

1) Who's getting the credit for these scores? Never mind...

2) Definition of independence p(A and B) = P(A) and P(B). I think you have it. - Aug 10th 2011, 07:57 PMBushyRe: independant events

No worries. I was making fun of the wording, not your attitude.

Consult those defintions. They WILL save you!
