A group of students who are selecting 2 of their group at random to give a report, but assume that there are 5 males and 3 females.
What is the probability that 2 females are selected? 2 males?
There is no replacement. The probability of all/both events is found by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
1. 3/8 * 2/7 = ?
2. 5/8 * 4/7 = ?
