posted by .

Among the examinees in an examination 30%, 35% and 45% failed in Statistics, in Mathematics, and in at least one of the subjects respectively. An examinee is selected at random. Find the probabilities that
a. He failed in Mathematics only
b. He passed in Statistics, if it is known that he has failed in Mathematics

    Make a Venn diagram.
    5% fail math only
    25% fail both
    10% fail stats only
    60% pass both.

    Of the 30% (of all students) who failed math, 5/6 of that group (25% of all students)failed stats also. That is a conditional probability of 83.3%. Only 16.7% of the math-failing group pass stats.
