Ned is one of 6 library volunteers. He is also one of 8 playground volunteers. Each week 1 volunteer from each group is randomly chosen from each group to work.
(Park A) What is the probability that Ned will be chosen for both groups in the same week?
(Park B) Are these events independent or dependent?
prob(he will be picked for both groups) = (1/6)(1/8) = 1/48
independent, one has no effect on the other.
