$\frac{9477}{200000}$
Choosing an acre of land from one state does not affect the choosing of an acre of land from the other two states so the events are independent: Write the percents as a fraction which will be their probabilities: Alabama= 27% =$\frac{27}{100}$ ->P(A.farmland) Florida=27% =$\frac{27}{100}$ -> P(F.Farmland) Indiana=65% =$\frac{65}{100}$ =$\frac{13}{20}$ ->P(I.Farmland) P(All farmland)=P(A.Farmland) $\times$ P(F.farmland) $\times$ P(I.Farmalnd) P(all land)=$\frac{27}{100}$ $\times$ $\frac{27}{100}$ $\times$ $\frac{13}{20}$ P(all land)=$\frac{9477}{200000}$
