A={a heart is drawn}

C={a face card is drawn (J,Q,K)}

tis is my workking.... for whether A and C is indepent

P(A intersection C)=3/52=0.0576

(13/52)*(12/52)=0.25*0.23=0.575

whats goin on

Two events, A and C, are independent if the fact that A occurs does not affect the probability of C occurring.

When two events, A and B, are independent, the probability of both occurring is: P(A and B) = P(A) · P(B)

(13/52)(12/52)=(1/4)(12/52)=12/208=6/104=3/52=0.0577? - April 22nd 2010, 03:54 AMnpm1is dat awsner
