    Let \(A\) and \(B\) be mutually exclusive events. Then the identity\[P(A\cup B)=P(A)\cup P(B)-P(A\cap B)\]becomes\[P(A\cup B)=P(A)\cup P(B).\] Similarly, let \(A\) and \(B\) be independent events. Then the identity\[P(A\cup B)=P(A)\cup P(B)-P(A\cap B)\]becomes\[P(A\cup B)=P(A)\cup P(B)-P(A)P(B).\] Finally, all you have to do is perform very simple algebra to find \(P(B)\).

    Thank you:) though I figured the answer just a couple of minutes after asking. I'm glad you answered though, someone **MAY** need it. :P
