A delivery truck must make stops in eight different cities, designated by the first letter in

the name of the city: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. If the order in which the truck visits the eight locations

is chosen randomly, what is the probability that it will visit them in alphabetical order?

First blue = 5/12

Second blue = 4/11

Third blue = 3/10

Red = 7/9

The probability that all/both events occur is found by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
