Events A and B are independent.

P(A and B) = 0.25

What are possible probabilities for events A and B ?

P(A and B) = 0.25

What are possible probabilities for events A and B ?

Since A and B are independent events, and P(A and B) = 0.25, then any values demonstrating P(A) x P(B) = 0.25 would

work, if both values are greater than 0 and less than or equal to 1.

Then P(A and B)

= P(A) x P(B)

= (0.5)(0.5)

= 0.25

work, if both values are greater than 0 and less than or equal to 1.

**P(A) = 0.5**

and

P(B) = 0.5and

P(B) = 0.5

Then P(A and B)

= P(A) x P(B)

= (0.5)(0.5)

= 0.25
