The probability that a 3-year old garter snake will reach 4 years old is 0.62719. (a) what is the probability that two randomly selected will reach 4 years old? What is the probability that five randomly selected 3 year old garter snakes will reach 4 years old?
If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.
