# how to calculate this probability?

team A scores on 60% of their matches and concedes on 54% of them
team B scores on 33% of their matches and concedes on 45% of them

what is the probability for each team to score in a game between them?

What does concede have to do with scoring?

The trick to answer this is whether the probability is independent or dependent (ignoring the issue of conceding).

hello m8
thank you for the reply
to be honest i do not know if the conceding of one team has any relation with the scoring of the other

i suppose it has,but i do not know for sure

Can you find out? Nothing in what you presented explains why this is even referenced.

If you assume it has no impact then you have to determine if how much each team scores depends on how much the other team scores (the probability of scoring is dependent). Or if they are independent. Knowing that answers the question.
