It would help if you proofread your questions before you posted them.

Question is confusing. What are your asking for specifically?

Multiplicaiton Rule:

P(math and computer)=P(math) *P(computer)

P(math and computer) = 72/650 * 105/650 = 0.018

The probability that a student enrolled at this college is a math and biology major is 0.018
