Q:

The odds favouring the event of a person hitting a target are 3 to 5. The odds against the event of another person hitting the target are 3 to 2. If each of them fire once at the target, find the probability that both of them hit the target.

A) 1/20 B) 4/20
C) 1/20 D) 3/20

Answer:   D) 3/20



Explanation:

Let A be the event of first person hitting the target,

P(A) =33+5=38  (odd in favour)

Let B be the event of Second person hitting a target.

P(B)=23+2=25 (odd against)

Since both events are independent and both will hit the target so,

P(AB)= P(A)P(B)=38×25=320
