Sally Jones arrived at the Mega Market Mall and slid her white Ford Fiesta in among eight other cars in a parking section that could accommodate nine.
Sally received a call from Molly while parking.
“I’m at a restaurant right now lunching with Jane, Sally, but we’ll soon be off to the Mega Market Mall in separate cars,” said Molly excitedly. “There’s a big sale on shoes. How can we meet up?”
“Just park your cars on both sides of my white Ford Fiesta. I’ll be able to see you between the trees from the window of the art exhibition hall, and I’ll come get you.”
“But if the slots next to your car are occupied, how can we meet?”
“There is lots of traffic in and out of the mall. Should be no problem.”
Molly didn’t seem convinced.
If there were five cars including Sally’s in the parking section, what would be the probability that Molly and Jane could park alongside Sally’s car?
