There are 5 options on the dessert menu at a restaurant. Erin and Ellen like all of the choices equally, so they each choose a dessert at random from the menu. What is the probability that Erin will choose apple pie and Ellen will choose strawberry cheesecake for dessert? Express your answer as a decimal. If necessary, round your answer to the nearest thousandth.
If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
1/5 * 1/5 = ?
