    reason i am asking is that the question makes no sense you do not "solve a compound event" you can find the probability of a compound event a compound even it where two or more things happen

    if one event is say A, and the other is B then the compound event (both things occur) is the intersection \(A\cap B\)

    to find the probability of the compound event, use \[P(A\cap B)=P(A)\times P(B|A)\]

    IF the events are "independent' then it is just multiplication \[P(A\cap B)=P(A)\times P(B)\]
