I put 0.97 as the answer ( 1-0.03=0.97)

2. The instructor in a Humanities class says that students have a 15% probability of making an A in her class, 20% probabilty of making a B, 25% chance of making a C, and 20% chance of making a D.

A) 50%

B) 70%

C) 85%

D) Cannot be determined from the information given.

**Reiny**, Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 8:45pmyour #1 is correct

#2. if prob(making A) = 15%

then prob(not making A) = 100%-15% = 85%

#3. to make A or B = 15% + 20% = 35%

(since A and B are independent events, that is, you can't make both an A and a B), we can just add them up

so prob(not making A or B) = 100-35 or 65%

#4 more than C --- > either A or B which is 35%
