Complete the two-way frequency table below, which shows the relationship between a person's gender and whether he or she wears his or her favorite sports team's jersey to sporting events. From a sample of 70 people entering a sports venue, it is found that there are 26 females, 45 people wearing a team jersey, and 17 females not wearing a team jersey.

Team        Jersey         No Team         JerseyTotal

Female                            17                       26

Male

Total             45                                          70

What is the probability (rounded to the nearest whole percent) that a person entering a sports venue will be a male given that he or she is wearing a team jersey? Are the events being male and wearing a team jersey independent?

80%; they are independent

80%; they are not independent

82%; they are not independent

51%; they are independent

Team        Jersey         No Team         JerseyTotal

Female           9                17                       26

Male             36                  8                       44

Total             45                 25                      70

Probabilty that  a person is male given that they are wearing a team jersey  =

36/45  =  4/5  = .80   = 80%

To test whether this is independent

Let A  = probability of being a male  =  44/70

Let B = probability of wearing a team jersey  =  45/70

P(A ∩ B)   = P(A) x P(B)  ???

.80  = (44/70) * (45/70)   ??

.80  =  .404       not independent

Thank you, so what makes them not independent?
