Topic: Probability & Independence 102. Joe is considering pursuing an MBA degree. He has applied to two different universities.
The acceptance rate for applicants with similar qualifications is 25% for University A and
40% for University B.
Is the acceptance decision at University A independent of the acceptance decision at
University B?
A. Yes
B. No
Yes, the two decisions are statistically independent
If the MBA acceptance decisions are independent at the two universities, then
P(Accepting at A) = P(Accepting at A given rejecting at B). AACSB: Analytical Studies
