Given the probability of rain on any given day in March is 1/5, find the probablity that: It rains on March 10 and 12, but not on March 11th. This is supposed to be used with multiplication Rule 1:
P(A and B)= P(A)*P(B) cant figure it out, the answer is 4/125 and I have no clue how

  • Probability -

    I figured this out:
    1/5 = rain
    4/5= no rain
    1/5*1/5*4/5 = 4/125

  • Probability -

    you want:
    rain, no rain, rain
    = (1/5)(4/5)(1/5) = 4/125
