In this scenario, the doctor's office has a total of 22 lollipops. Out of these 22 lollipops, 2 are grape and 7 are cherry.
So, the probability of Jennifer choosing a grape lollipop is 2/22, since there are 2 grape lollipops out of a total of 22 lollipops.
After Jennifer takes a lollipop, there will be 21 lollipops left. Out of these 21 lollipops, 7 are cherry.
Therefore, the probability of Seth choosing a cherry lollipop is 7/21, since there are 7 cherry lollipops out of a total of 21 lollipops.
To find the probability of both events happening, we multiply the probabilities of each event occurring:
(2/22) * (7/21) = 14/462
Simplifying the fraction, we get:
14/462 = 1/33
So, the probability that Jennifer will choose a grape lollipop and Seth will choose a cherry lollipop is 1/33.
