CH 12, 13 1. In a town, 30% of the households own a dog, 20% own a cat, and 10% own both a dog and a cat. If we select a household at random, the chance that they own a dog or a cat is 40% This answer is correct. We want to find the probability of owning a dog or a cat, which we could call P(A or B). Since we have the word "or," we need an addition rule. These events are not disjoint since there are 10% of households that own both a dog and a cat, so P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A and B) = 0.30 + 0.20 – 0.10 = 0.40 or 40%. Text reference: section 13.2. 2. A group of college DJs surveyed students to find out what music to plan for their upcoming parties. Thirty percent of the students preferred dubstep, 25% of the students liked trance music, and 20% wanted to hear only house music. Fifteen percent of the respondents selected both dubstep and trance. The proportion of students that preferred either dubstep or trance is calculated by; P (A) + P (B) – P (A and B). 3. Event A occurs with probability 0.2. Event B occurs with probability 0.9. Events A and B: cannot be disjoint.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
