Every Persons blood belongs to one of four blood groups. The percentage of U.S. blood donors to the Red Cross is given:

Type A=37% B=12.5% AB=3.5% O=47%

a)What is the Probability that the blood of any two unrelated people in a Red Cross blood drive belong to the same group?

Is this correct?
P(Ba)=.37 P(Bb)=.125 P(Bab)=.035 P(Bo)=.47

P(Samegroup)=P(Ba)^2+P(Bb)^2+P(Bab)^2+P(Bo)^2= 0.37465 ?
