An archer makes two attempts to hit a target, and the probability that he hits the target on any one attempt is $\frac{1}{3}$13.

What is the probability that the archer will miss the target on both attempts?

A class contains $5$5 girls and $6$6 boys. Two are selected for a class committee. What is the probability that a girl and boy are selected?

If two events are independent, then
