20. A and B are independent events. P(A) = 0.6 and P(B) = 0.8, find P(A and B).

21. If P(A) = 0.72. what is P(Ā)?

    q15

    use the formula P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A & B)

    P(3 hearts) + P(numbers less than 5) - P(both)

    = (C(13,3) + C(20,3) - C(5,3))/C(52,3) = 354/5525, ≈ 6.4% <-----

    one q at a time !
