In a certain town, of the population has dimples and has a widow’s peak (a hairline above the forehead that makes a “V” shape). Assuming that these physical traits are independently distributed, what is the probability that a randomly selected person has both dimples and a widow’s peak? What is the probability that he or she will have neither? Use a generic area model or a tree diagram to represent this situation.

2 by 2 rectangle, labeled as follows: Top edge left, will have Dimples 45%, top edge right, will not have dimples 55%, left edge top, will have widow's peak 70%, left edge bottom, will not have widow's peak 30%. Interior: top left, 31.5%, top right, 38.5%, bottom left, 16.5%, bottom right, 16.5%.
