The probability of rain is 1/6 for any given day next week. What is the chance it rains on both Monday and Tuesday?

(A) 1/36
(B) 1/12
(C) 1/6
(D) 1/3
(E) 2/3


P(rains on Monday AND rains on Tuesday) = P(rains on Monday) x P(rains on Tuesday)
= 1/6 x 1/6
= 1/36

Answer: A

Cheers,
Brent

p(a and b) = p(a) *p(b)
Since these are independent events
hence probability of raining on monday and tuesday = 1/6*1/6= 1/36
