Five are A students, and three of these students are girls. If a student is chosen at random, what is the probability of choosing a girl and a A student? ---------------------------- P(girl AND A-student) = P(girl)*P(A-student| girl) = (17/30)*(3/17) = 3/30 = 1/10 ===================================== Cheers, Stan H.
