    I'm confused.......is this a conditional probability problem? because if you looking for P(F) you already have it, but if your looking for the probability of P(F) give the probability of P(E) you have to use bayes formula

    thought so...... its going to be bayes formula P(F/E)=P(FE)/P(E) P(F/E)=0.7/0.3 because P(FE)=P(EF)
