You roll 2 dice. The first die has 26 sides and contains the 26 letters of the English alphabet; the other die has 12 sides and contains numbers 1-12. What is the probability that you will roll a letter with one enclosed area (A, D, O, P, Q, R) and a number divisible by 4 (4, 8, 12)?

  1. the two dice are independent events
    ... the probability of both occurring
    ... is the product (multiply) of the individual probabilities

    p = (6 / 26) * (3 / 12)

    remember to reduce fractions where possible
