# statistics - conditional probability

Event A has probability 0.9 of occurring. Event B has 0.2 chance of occurring if, and only if, event A has occurred. What is the overall probability that event B will occur?

I'm so confused. This seems so simple, I'm not sure why I can't reason through it. They're not independent events...
