I think I have the right answer, but I'm not sure. Is it possible if someone could just double check me?
Jean bought a bag of candy that contained red candies, green candies, and brown candies. Some candies are marked with a smile, and others are not marked. The probabilities are displayed in the table below:
Red Green Brown
Smile 0.10 0.30 0.10
No smile 0.20 0.15 0.15
If a random candy is chosen from this bag, what is the probability that the candy was red or had no smile?
0.60 < What I think it is.
0.20
0.30
0.50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1prob red is 0.1+0.2 prob no smile is 0.20 0.15 0.15 we add (but we should *not* double count the red , no smile case) in other words 0.1 + 0.2 +0.15+0.15 = 0.6
