Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In a group of 100 persons, 85 had Rh positive blood (Rh factor present), 45 had Type O blood, and 38 had both type O and Rh positive blood. If one person had been selected at random from the group, what would the probability be: 1. that his blood type was Type O and Rh+? A. 3 /20 2. that his blood type was not O? B. 17/20 3. that his blood type was Rh? C . 93/100 4. that his blood type was Type O and Rh? D. 11/20 5. that his blood type was Rh+? E. 7/100 6. that his blood type was not Type O or else was Rh+? F. 19/50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4if we add the 3 sections we get: 85+4538 = 92 so there must be 8 people in the setup that had neither Rh or O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.41. that his blood type was Type O and Rh+? A. 38 /100 2. that his blood type was not O? B. (100  45)/100 3. that his blood type was Rh? (not RH) C. (100  85)/100 4. that his blood type was Type O and notRh? D. 45/100 * C 5. that his blood type was Rh+? E. 85/100 6. that his blood type was not Type O or else was Rh+? F. B + E

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4notO includes the areas: 47, 8 Rh includes the areas: 47, 38 if we add these together to find the probability of notO or Rh, im doubling an area.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.44. that his blood type was Type O and notRh? this one might be off as well dw:1366392674723:dw the commonality of O "and" notRH is spose to be 7/100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yes, it might help to rewrite the options in 100 format A. 15/100 B. 85/100 C . 93/100 D. 55/100 E. 7/100 F. 38/100 that should be more intuitive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@aussy123, @amistre64 has been quicker than me. I was preparing these tables for you. In the first table you have the given data in green and the calculated data in yellow. The other sisx tables correspond to each question of the problem where I have shaded in green the data to consider. Though late, I hope it helps
