The probability that we will see the movie in theater one and sit in the front row is (D) 2.5%.

### What is probability?

• Probability is a branch of mathematics that deals with numerical descriptions of how likely an event is to occur or how likely a proposition is to be true.
• The probability of an event is a number between 0 and 1, where 0 indicates the event’s impossibility and 1 indicates certainty.
• A probability formula can be used to calculate the probability of an event by simply dividing the favorable number of outcomes by the total number of possible outcomes.
To find the probability that we will see the movie in theater one and sit in the front row:
Given –
• The probability that you are going to see the movie in theater one is 25%.
• The probability that you will sit in the front row is 10%.
So,
• (1/4)(1/10) = 1/40 = .025
• Or, 2.5%
Therefore, the probability that we will see the movie in theater one and sit in the front row is (D) 2.5%.
