    3/8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We first have to find the probability that the person selected is a male and then multiply that by the probability that the male has a college degree.

    There are 12 males and 4 females. There are 16 people in total. The probability of selecting a male is:

    12/16 = 3/4

    Half of the males have a college degree. Therefore, 6 males have a college degree. The probability that a selected male has a college degree is:

    6/12 = 1/2

    Therefore, the probability that a male is selected and that the male has a college degree is:

    3/4 * 1/2 = 3/8
