One plant from a garden is randomly selected. There is a 30% chance that the plant was purchased this year, and there is a 6% chance that the plant was purchased this year and produces berries. What is the probability that the chosen plant does not produce berries, given that the plant was purchased this year? Write the probability as a percent. Round to the nearest tenth if needed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1440510204253:dw One way to look at it is by the Venn Diagram. 30 out of 100 was purchased this year. 6 of those (from this year, namely 30) produced berries. How many of those from this year did not produce berries? What is the corresponding probability (out of the 30 from this year) that plants did not produce berries?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alternatively, use definition of conditional probability: P(no berries  from this year)=P(no berries and plants from this year)/P(plants from this year) =(24/100)/(30/100)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Probabilities are always between 0 and 1. If it goes outside, check and double check. Hope you put in the parentheses when you evaluated the expression above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1440511020660:dw If we're given that the plants are from this year, the sample space is 30, so 24/30=0.8.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you write 0.8 as a percentage and round to the nearest tenth if necessary?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, it's a new problem. Here you do the same as before, out of all the paper backs, how many are fiction?
