1. Answer:

The probability that a randomly selected American adult takes multivitamins regularly and works out regularly is  0.103

Step-by-step explanation:

p(Americans adults take multivitamins regularly) = 50% = 0.50

p(American adults work out regularly) = 20.6 = 0.206

p(Americans adults take multivitamins regularly and American adults work out regularly) = 0.50* 0.206 = 0.103

Thus, p(Americans adults take multivitamins regularly and American adults work out regularly)  = 0.103
