in my multiple hoisce these are the chouces
its like reading a stroke :)
a. 2/11 b.6/11 c.2/33 d.8/33
* in my multiple choices theses are the choices
first action: 4/12 AND second action: 2/11 so combined probability 4/12 * 2/11
AND means multiply for probabilities
but how do i multiply it
do you know how to multiple fractions?
no not really
multiply both numerators with each other
and multiply both denominators with each other
i got 8/132
\[(4/12) * (3/11) = (4*3) / (12*11)\]
you can simplify before or after multiplying
i got it thanks i got 2/33
before multiplying: simplify 4/12 which gives you 1/3. Now multiply 1/3 * 2/11 which is (1*2) / (3*11) = 2/33
thanks for your help
or after multiplying: first multiply and get (4*2) / (12*11) = 8/132 and now simplify to 2/33
it's usually easier to simplify first
you're welcome :) glad i could help
