A blood bank catalogs the types of blood, including positive or negative Rhfactor, given by donors during the last five days. The number of donors who gave each blood type is listed in the following table. A donor is selected at random. Blood Type O A B AB Total Rhpositive 156 139 37 12 344 Rhnegative 28 25 8 4 65 Total 184 164 45 16 409 4. What is the probability that the donor has type O or type A blood? (a) 0.85 (b) 0.45 (c) 0.40 (d) 0.84 (e) none of these 5. What is the probability that the donor has type B blood or is Rhnegative? (a) 0.16 (b) 0.25 (c) 0.11 (d) 0.27 (e) none of these 68. In a group of 40 people, 8 are lefthanded. Two people are selected from the group one after the other with replacement. 6. What is the probability that both people selected are lefthanded?
