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 60 people entering a sports venue, it is found that there are 22 females, 40 people wearing a team jersey, and 17 females not wearing a team jersey.
 

              Team Jersey    No Team Jersey   Total

Female                                    17                22

Male

Total           40                                             60



What is the probability (rounded to the nearest whole percent) that a person entering a sports venue will be a female given that he or she is not wearing a team jersey? Are the events being female and not wearing a team jersey independent?

 

A 28%, they are not independent

B 77%, they are independent

C 85%, they are not independent 

D 37%, they are independent
