1. In a certain game, the probability of getting a red outcome is 0.03. Find the probability of getting an outcome that is not red? The answer must be in a decimal.
I put 0.97 as the answer ( 10.03=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. The possible grades that can be assigned are A, B, C, D, and F. What is the probability that a student does not make an A?
A) 50%
B) 70%
C) 85%
D) Cannot be determined from the information given.

your #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) = 10035 or 65%
#4 more than C  > either A or B which is 35%
