    Answer:

    Total probability = 3/8

    Explanation:

    Below is the calculation:

    Number of molecules in the container = 3

    The probability of one molecule in the left half, P = 3 / 2 = 1.5 or 1/2

    The probability of second molecule in the left half, P1 = (3/4)

    Total probability = P x P1

    Total probability = (1/2) x (3/4)

    Total probability = 3/8
