Say i have two variables that have independent gaussian distributions of probability of being a certain value when i sample them, what is the likely hood that both will land on a 3 sigma value simultaneously? Is there an equation that easily determines that? Also for other combinations like one at 2 sigma and the other at 3 sigma, or what if i have 3 variables instead of two, etc.

Side question, if i had applied a sigma multiplier of 2x, how does that affect the values?

Thanks!
