a teacher on her way to work passes through 3 stoplights each morning. the distances between the stop lights are great and the lights operate independently of each other. if the probability of the red lights are .4,.8 and .6 for each light, what is the probability to the nearest hundredth that she wont have any red lights on her way to work?
If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
(1-.4)(1-.8)(1-.6) = ?
