Imagine the following scenario to solve the probability problem.
Suppose A and B are independent events with P(A)=1/5 and P(B)=1/6
. Find each of the following.

a.) P(A and B)=1/30
b.) P(A or B)=
c.) P(not A)=
d.) P(not(A and B))=

I am confused...Please help me.

  1. For independent events,
    P(A and B) = P(A) * P(B)
    P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B)
    P(not A) = 1 - P(A)
