    Quick Probability Q

    Given Probability of A B and C to be 0.7 0.6 0.5

    Find the probability than none occur given they are independant.

    I think it might be 0.3 X 0.4 X 0.5 = .06

    Thanks

    Thanks! Then would the probability of A and B not occuring and C occuring be the same?

    0.3 X 0.4 X 0.5 = 0.06?
