    "the probability that the adult rents action-movie DVDs, given that the adult is female" can be written as P(rents action movie DVDS | female) = P(female and rents action movie DVDs)/P(female) P(female) = 0.51, since 51% of the adults are female (1-0.49 = 0.51) P(female and rents action movie DVDs) = 0.1 (given in the problem)

    0.1/0.51 is about 0.20 when you plug it into your calculator
