Two-way tables
The two-way table below describes the members of the U.S Senate in a recent year.
Male Female
Democrats 47 13
Republicans 36 4
If we select a U.S. senator at random, what's the probability that the senator is a female and a Democrat?

P(Female and Democrats)=$$\frac{ \text{# of favorable outcomes}}{ \text{# of possible outcomes}}$$$$\displaystyle=\frac{{13}}{{100}}={0.13}$$
