Work Step by Step

If A and B are dependent events, then P(A and B) = P(A) *P(B given that A has occurred) E: A coconut-filled chocolate followed by a solid chocolate A: A coconut-filled chocolate B: A solid chocolate given a coconut-filled chocolate is selected first. P(A) = $\frac{5}{30}$ P(B) =$\frac{15}{29}$ P(E) = $\frac{5}{30}$ .$\frac{15}{29}$ P(E) =$\frac{5}{58}$
