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

    prob 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
