  • probabilty -

    This is a problem in "conditional probability".

    The probability of E, given F is:
    P(E/F) = P (E and F)/ P(F)

    Call P(F) = drama = .67 given
    Call P(E) = Computer = unknown
    the P(EandF) =.14 given
    Now the probability that a student takes computer given drama
    = .14/.67 = .21
