If two orders are selected, find the probability that they are both from Restaurant D.
a. Assume that the selections are made with replacement. Are the events independent?
b. Assume that the selections are made without replacement. Are the events independent?
a. Assume that the selections are made with replacement. Are the events independent?
The probability of getting two orders from Restaurant D is
nothing.
The events

independent because choosing the first order

the choice of the second order.
(Round to four decimal places as needed.)

Total orders = 340 + 273 + 246 + 141 + 40 + 60 + 39 + 13 = 1152
Total orders from restaurant D = 141 + 13 = 154
a) The events are not independent because choosing the first order does not affect the choice of the second order.
P(both orders are from restaurant D) = (154 / 1152)^{2} = 0.0179
b) The events are independent because choosing the first order affects the choice of the second order.
P(both orders are from restaurant D) = (154/1152) * (153/1151) = 0.0178
