multiplication rule

” If two events A and B are independent, the joint probability can be computed with a simple multiplication of the two separate probabilities: P(A ∩ B) = P(A) *P(B). For example, with a fair die and random throws, the probability of obtaining any specific number is 1/6, so the probability of throwing “snake eyes” or two ones is (1/6)(1/6) or (1/36). “
