CFA Practice Question

Suppose we roll a die and let A be the event that the number of spots showing is 6. We then toss a coin and let B be the event that the coin comes up heads. The P(A and B) is ______.
A. 1/12
B. 4/6
C. 7/12
Explanation: The two events are independent because the outcome of the die cannot influence the outcome of the coin. In this case, P(A) = 1/6 and P(B) = 1/2. Because the events are independent, we can use the multiplication rule for independent events to find P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B).
