(b) Given that a credit card purchase was at least \$30, find the probability that it was over \$100. (c) Find the probability that a purchase was under \$30. (d) Find the probability that a purchase was paid by cash. (e) Are “Under \$30” and “Cash” independent events? Explain. Problem 2. A carnival has three games. In Game A, the player has a 4% chance of winning. In Game B, the player has a 3% chance, and in Game C, a 2% chance.

Include all events and probabilities (conditional and joint) involved. (b) You go to the carnival and see your friend with a stuffed dragon which she won at one of the games. What is the probability that she won it at Game A? (c) Inspired by your friend’s success, you decide to play one game. Unfortunately, Game A has ceased to operate for the day.

### What students are saying

• 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.
