An airline serves a dinner to all the passengers on an airplane. They get their choice of steak or fish. Three steak meals and three fish meals are set aside for the six-member crew. If the meals are distributed to the crew members randomly, what is the probability that both pilots get the fish?

The probability that the first pilot gets fish = 1/2 = 50

The probabilty that the second pilot gets fish = 2/5 = .40

So 

P(A and B)  = .50 * .40  =  .20  = 20%
