Work Step by Step

The probabilities are independent of each other. Thus we need to apply the following principles, $P(A$ and $B) = P(A)*P(B)$ P(A) = 3/16 P(B) = 5/16 The probability of the event is the number of slices of the given color over the number of total slices. $P(A$ and $B)$ = $5/16*3/16$ = $15/256$
