Please come back i need help @pooja195

2. anonymous

is this the exact question? just as written?

3. anonymous

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

4. anonymous

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

5. anonymous

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

6. anonymous

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