If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events. The numbers get smaller because there is no replacement.
A. 22/36 * 21/35 * 20/34 * 19/33 * 18/32 * 17/31 * 16/30 * 15/29 = ?
B. 14/36 * 13/35 ….
C. 22/36 * 21/35 * 20/34 * 19/33 * 18/32 * 17/31 * 14/30 * 13/29 = ?
D. 22/36 * 21/35 * 20/34 * 19/33 * 14/32 * 13/31 ….
