Probabilities and compound events problem?
You've decided you want a plant for your room. At the gardening store, there are 4 different kinds of plants (tulip, fern, cactus, and ficus) and 4 different kinds of pots to hold the plants (clay pot, plastic pot, metal pot, and wood pot).
If you randomly pick the plant and the pot, what is the probability that you'll end up with a tulip in a plastic pot?
The answer I got is:
P(tulip and plastic pot) = 1/16
I'm I correct?

P(Tulip) = 1/4
P(plastic pot) = 1/4
The choices are independent so, 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/16
