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.
