If the Probabilities that a tourist will visit Po Lin Monastery, the Peak, and both white staying in Hong Kong are 0.6, 0.75 and 0.45 respectively, find the Probabilities that a tourist tourist will visit Po Lin Monastery or The Peak.

The above must be wrong since the probability of an event cannot be > 1.
P ( Po Lin ) = 0.6
P ( Peak ) = 0.75
P ( Po Lin and peak ) = 0.45
So P ( Po Lin or Peak )
= P ( Po Lin ) + P ( Peak ) - P ( Po Lin and Peak )
= 0.6 + 0.75 - 0.45
= 0.9Source(s): My Maths Knowledge

P(visit Po Lin Monastery)=0.6
P(visit the Peak)=0.75
Probabilities(visit Po Lin Monastery or The Peak) = 0.6+0.75 = 1.35Source(s): ki copyrights@2007Nov
