Question

Suppose a poll of 539 adults asked whether increasing oil, gas, and coal production or developing alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power should be given a higher

Complete parts a through d below. a) What is the probability that all three responded "Oil, gas, coal?" b) What is the probability that none responded "Equally Important"? c) What assumption must be made to compute these probabilities? d) Explain why that assumption is reasonable.
