Suppose one of the candidates is selected at random. Define the following events:

A = person selected has 9 years experience
B = person selected is a female

Find P(A / B).

A) 0.4552
B) 0.333
C) 0.581
D) 0.418

    From your data, you have 6 candidates, with 2 having 9+ years of experience and 3 being female. This should give you the probabilities of A and B. Assuming you want to know what is the probability that the candidate will be both experienced and female, multiply the two probabilities.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
