If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

a) .3^2 * .7^3 = ?

b) Same as 1, 2 or 3 people agreeing.

for one: .3 * .7^4 = ?

for two: see above

for three: .3^3 * .7^2 = ?

Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.

c) Same as 2, 3, 4, or 5 agreeing.

d) Same as 1 or 2 agreeing.
