1.The probability of a red candy being selected from a bowl is 0.9, and the probability of a pink frosted animal cookie being taken out of a different bowl is 0.4. What is the probability of getting both a red candy and a pink cookie? 2.If a cat falls out of a tree, it has a probability of 0.92 that it will land on its feet. If two different cats fall out of two different trees, what is the probability that they both land on their feet? In these problems, would you add the two probabilities together to get the answer? Or would they need to be done differently? Last edited by Indigo28; April 7th, 2017 at 09:54 PM.

you really need to read your textbook before attempting these problems.
