# Thread: Probability of multiple tags on a sea turtles pinging within an hour

1. ## Probability of multiple tags on a sea turtles pinging within an hour

There are 7 sea turtles each with a pinging tag on it.
Turtle 1: 52% of an hour tag is pinging
Turtle 2: 52% of an hour tag is pinging
Turtle 3: 17.3% of an hour tag is pinging
Turtle 4: 17.3% of an hour tag is pinging
Turtle 5: 17.3% of an hour tag is pinging
Turtle 6: 17.3% of an hour tag is pinging
Turtle 7: 17.3% of an hour tag is pinging

Tags can not ping at the same time during the hour. What is the probability that all 7 seven tags will ping in an hour?

Is there part of the question I need to fix or add to understand it better?

Add some more detail. Note that none of us know what you mean when you say something like "pinging tag".
