2 1. If P ( A ) = P ( B ) = P ( C ) = 1 / 4 and A , B , and C are disjoint, then what is P ( A B C )? Solution: P ( A B C ) = P ( A ) + P ( B ) + P ( C ) = 1 4 + 1 4 + 1 4 = 3 4 . 2. Suppose that P (it rains today) = 0 . 7, P (it rains tomorrow) = 0 . 8, and P (it rains either day) = 0 . 9. What’s the probability that it rains neither day? Solution: P (Neither Today nor Tomorrow) = 1 - P (it rains either day) = 1 - 0 . 9 = 0 . 1 . 3. If P ( A ) = 0 . 3, P ( B ) = 0 . 3, and P ( C ) = 0 . 5, and A , B , and C are independent, find the probability that at least one of A , B , and C occur. Solution: There may be a faster way to do this, but let’s do it the first way I can think of . ... By DeMorgan’s Law and independence, P ( A B C ) = 1 - P ( A B C ) = 1 - P ( ¯ A ¯ B ¯ C ) = 1 - P ( ¯ A ) P ( ¯ B ) P ( ¯ C ) = 1 - (0 . 7)(0 . 7)(0 . 5) = 0 . 755 . 4. If I pick a random real number between 0 and 1, what is the probability that the selection will be a number of the form 1 /k , where k = 1 , 2 ,... ? Solution: 0.
