First, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where it is more likely to be overlooked.

Second, what is your question?

Assuming that the percentage applies to an hour,

First item p=.05

Second item p = .05

The probability of all/both probabilities occurring is found by multiplying the individual probabilities.
