i think the answer will be 0

no cannot be....the event has occured....its not an impossible event...

u see there are only two chances either A will win or B will

(1-4/5)(1-5/6)

that can be one case but i nvr said that only A and B are playing.....

wait these are not mutually exclusive events

oh ok gotcha

uhhh this is just one event right?

yeah...event that neither wins...

yahoo's solution should've been right...

also this doesnt make sense... 4/5 + 5/6 = 49/30

the total probability should be less or equal to 1

P(both winning) = 4/5 * 5/6
P(both not winning) = 1- 4/5 * 5/6

draw a probability tree. Remember as we go along we multiply the values

uhh no @rsadhvika..

what you did is probability that NOT both will win

\[P(A \; and \;B \;win) = P(A) \times P(B)\]
subtract it from 1 I think..

oh im wrong again @lgbasallote :'(

@waterineyes u just did what @rsadhvika did...

there must be a silly trick to this :/

Subtract them from 1 each and then add them..

we're thinking too complex...we need to open our brains to the possibilities :/

i really dont think this is one event

could you post the whole question?/

yup @lgbasallote there are more than one case to this problem

hmm i knew it =_=

this is the whole question @lgbasallote

um, tried my solution?

the probabilities dont add up to less than or equal to 1

i got the answer....

i think what @rsadhvika first posted should work then...

THINK SIMPLE! PROBABILITY TREE!

uhh should it be +

Sorry there will come multiplication..

uhh can you post the WHOLE question with all these cases?

no paraphrasing...the exact one...

I think we are making it complicated..
There is one and one case only..

you're suddenly giving situations...so i think what you originally posted isnt the full question

4/5 -> A will win (B cannot win)
1/5 -> A will not win (B still can)
5/6 -> B will win
1/6 -> B will not win (Neither A or B wins) [What you want]
If you take a look at my probability tree, you will see what I mean.
Remember you multiply the values as you go along.
So, YOUR ANSWER -> 1/6 * 1/5 = 1/30

The example violates basic probability rules. If only one can win then
P(A) + P(B) <= 1

@telliott99, remember there are others in this 'race' or whatever it is.
