**drwls**, Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 4:02pmThe answer is Prob(A) + Prob(B) - Prob (A + B)= 0.6 + 0.3 - 0.18 = 0.72

The last term avoids double counting of the occurence of both A and B, which satisfied the "A or B" criterion only once.

The answer is certainly not 0.3, since 60% of the events are A and satisfy the A or B requirement
