    Answer: .012

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We know that when two events A and B are independent of each other , then the probability of their intersection is given by :-

    P(A\cap B)=P(A)\ \cdot\ P(B)

    Given : The probability that a shopper buys shoes is 0.12

    The probability that a shopper buys a book is 0.10

    Since, both the events are independent , then the probability that a shopper buys shoes and a book is given by :-

    0.12\times0.10=0.012

    Hence, the probability that a shopper buys shoes and a book is .012 .
