    210 of those 300 enter the class. 80% of the students that enter the class get good grades, 15% of the students that dont enter the class get good grades

    If we chose a random matriculated student, which is the probability of him: 1. Being in the class 2. Don't being in the class and getting good grades 3. Getting good grades

    first you find how many students that arnt in the class and are getting gud grades so 90 x 15/100 = 27/2 feel sorry for the student that lost a limb :(

    haha xD well there 90 students not in the class, and only 15% of the 90 pass, so 90 x 15/100

    and then 27/2 / 300 = 9/200

    90 students are people that do not come to class, 15% of these students are students that do well in exams. therefore 90 x 15/100 = 27/2

    We know that 9 people that did not entered got good grades. We need to see the ones that did come in

    it would be 210 x 80/100 + 27/2

    168 entered and passed, 9 entered and passed, so 176

    Probability of entering and getting a good grade

    but it should be 168 + 27/2 because the number of students that didnt come to class and are getting gud grades are 27/2

  32. HawkCrimson

    so 195/2 students pass and the probability of the teacher choosing one is 195/2 /300
