It has been found that 60 percent of homes subscribe to a cable service including the program "Cooking with Math". However, of these subscribers, 18 percent never watch "Cooking with Math", while 15 percent claim to watch it more than 5 times per week.

Find the probability (as a decimal value) that a randomly selected home subscribes to a cable service including the program "Cooking with Math" and watches it more than 5 times per week.

  1. 60% of subscribers have access to the cooking show.
    "of these .... 15 percent claim to watch it more than 5 times per week. "

    So 60%*15%=9% of all subscribers watch it more than 5 times per week.

    Can you take it from here?
