Solution:
QUESTION: 25

A bag contains 12 balls which are numbered from 1 to 12. If a ball is selected at random, what is the probability that the number of the ball will be a multiple of 5 or 6 ?

Solution:
QUESTION: 26

Given that for two events A and B, P(A)=3/5, P(B)=2/3 and P(A union B) =3/4, what is P(A|B)?

Solution:

P(A|B) = P(A&B)/P(B)
So first we have to find P(A&B)
P(AUB) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A&B)3/4 = 3/5 + 2/3 - P(A&B)
Multiply through by 60
45 = 36 + 40 - 60P(A&B)
45 = 76 - 60P(A&B)
-31 = -60P(A&B)
31/60 = P(A&B)
Go back to
P(A|B) = P(A&B)/P(B)
P(A|B) = (31/60)/(2/3)
P(A|B) = (31/60)(3/2)
P(A|B) = 31/40 = 0.775

QUESTION: 27

For two independent events A and B, what is P (A+B), given P(A) = 3/5 and P(B) = 2/3?

Solution:

P(A + B) = 13/15
Step-by-step explanation:
P(A) = Probability of Event A Heppening
P(A') = Probability of Event A not Happeining
P(A) = 3/5  => P(A') = 1 - 3/5  = 2/5
P(B) = 2/3  => P(B') = 1 - 2/3  = 1/3
P(A + B) = 1 - Probability of Event A & B not happening
P(A + B) = 1  - P(A')P(B')
=> P(A + B) = 1  -  (2/5)(1/3)
=> P(A + B) = 1  -  2/15
=> P(A + B) = 13/15

QUESTION: 28
