The total number of voters is (72 + 55 + 42) million. The probability of a randomly selected voter being an independent is \[P(Independent)=\frac{42}{72+55+42}=you\ can\ calculate\] When you have posted the result of the above calculation we can move on to the final step in the solution.

Correct! When selecting each of the voters the probability that they are an Independent is 0.24852071. The result of each selection is independent of the other results. Therefore the probability of all three being Independents is given by \[P(all\ 3\ Independents)=(0.248520710)^{3}=you\ can\ calculate\]

You just need to calculate 0.24852071 * 0.24852071 * 0.24852071 = ?
