So what is the probability that both can name the three movies? Mr F says: Let me get this straight. You're asking what is the probability that a person can name 3 movies when that person is chosen from a group that can name 3 movies ....

then what is the probability that both can name atleast three justices in court? Mr F says: (0.17)(0.17).

also, what is th eprobability that atlesat one of them can name at least three justices in court?

are these independent events?? Mr F says: Pr(at least 1) = 1 - Pr(none).

thanks for any help.
