if) the team ﬁnishes in the top three in its conference, or qualifies for the NCAA tournament, or both. The probability that the team’s season is considered “‘suCCessful” is 0.66. The probability that the team does not quatify for the NCAA tournament is 0.58
The probability that the team ﬁnishes the top three in its conference is 0.50. Determine whether the events “the team ﬁnishes in the top three in its conference” and “the
