P(A ∪ B ) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B) = 0.8 + 0.4 – 0.3 = 0.9. 3. { A } ={2, 4, 6}, { B} ={1, 2, 3} SO A = {1,3,5 } and A ∩ B = {1,3} 4. Let {E} denote {declare themselves computer science major at entry}, {G} denote event that a student {Graduates as a computer science major}. Given : P(E)=0.30 P(G)=0.20 and P(E ∩ G) = 0.10. We want P( G E ∩ ). Now P(E)= P(E ∩ G) +P( G E ∩ ). So 0.30 = 0.10 +P( G E ∩ ) . So P( G E ∩ ) = 0.300.10= 0.20. Or using the 2 x 2 table of probabilities and fact that P( A ) = 1 P(A) and P(A ∩ B )=P(A)  P(A ∩ B)we have P( G E ∩ ) = 0.2 .
