Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just add the probaility if they are disjoint however take out P(A and B) if the sets are not disjoint.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0E.) was P (A and B) and then F.) is P (A or B). Earlier in the question I did P(A)=230/580 and P(B)=200/580. What should I do to find P (A or B)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0P(A or B) =1P'(AorB) =1 150/580=430/580

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am sorry where did you get the 150 at?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0total P = P(A)+p(B)+P'(A or B)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if I need to solve for P (B or D) and P (B) was 200/580 and P (D) was 250/580. How do I solve this one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why would the problems be so different? Why did I use 1 in the first one but the second one just added the top numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0P(A+B)= P(A)+P(B)p(aandB)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know you gave me the formula but I dont understand how you got 150 still.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha its ok I just dont get probability at all. So can we start over real quick. I need to find P (A or B). P (A) was 230/580 and P(B) was 200/580.
