P(A) = 0.7 and P(A or B) = 0.11. Find P(B). A^B = empty set P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) = 0.11 = 0.7 + P(B); P(B) = 0.4 3) A and B are mutually exclusive events and P(A) = 0.5 and P(B) = 0.8. Find P(A or B). A^B = empty set; P(A) = 0.5, P(B) = 0.11 P(A or B) = ? P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) P(A) + P(A) = 1 P(B) + P(B) = 1 P(A) + 0.5 = 1 P(B) + 0.8 = 1 P(A) = 0.5 P(B) = 0.2 P(A or B) = 0.5 + 0.2 = 0.7 4) 80% of the applicants at Yogurtland have a college degree, 20% have at least 2 years experience in the yogurt industry, and 45% have both a college degree and 2 years experience in the yogurt industry.
