    Use the normal conditional probability formula \(\Large P(A/B) = \dfrac{P(A \cap B )}{P(B)}\) A here is event that the train arrives on time. B is the event that the train leaves on time.

    P(B) = probability that the train leaves on time = 0.9 P(A \(\cap \)B) = probability that the train leaves on time and arrives on time = 0.36

    yes, 0.4 is the correct answer. none of the choices have 0.4, there could be the mistake while giving choices. In that case,I would select the nearest option 0.36, if i have to select one..

    "They decide to visit one middle school and one high school in Atlanta, GA." this statement gives us the sample space. so, now what do you think is the answer?

    Can you help me with this one: A doctor wants to know if her patients are happy with her. She decides to survey a sample of her clients. What method would be best for choosing a random sample that is a fair representation of her patients? Assign numbers to each patient and then use a random number generator to choose one hundred patients to survey. Give a survey to the next one hundred patients who come to the office. Call the first one hundred patients in alphabetical order. Ask the nurse to refer one hundred patients to call.

    random number generator will give the most fair random sample.

    It means that we should use random number generator when we want a fair random sample. A random number generator will select a random number from a number space without any bias. so the doctor should assign numbers to each patient and then use a random number generator to choose one hundred patients to survey.
