 Question 311683: n is an integer chosen at random from the set {2,5,6} and p another integer chosen at random from the set {6,9,10}. What is the probability that the two numbers n and p are even? A) 2/9 B) 5/9 C) 4/9 D) 1/9 E) 7/9 Answer by stanbon(57203)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! n is an integer chosen at random from the set {2,5,6} and p another integer chosen at random from the set {6,9,10}. What is the probability that the two numbers n and p are even? -------------- These selections are independent events. P(even and even) = P(even)*P(even) = (2/3)(2/3) = 4/9 ===================== Cheers, Stan H. ===================== A) 2/9 B) 5/9 C) 4/9 D) 1/9 E) 7/9
