What is the probability that (a) the two numbers will differ by 1 or less and (b) the maximum of the two numbers will be 5 or larger? 1.2. Suppose Ω = { a,b,c } , P ( { a,b } ) = 0 . 7, and P ( { b,c } ) = 0 . 6. Compute the probabilities of { a } , { b } , and { c } . 1.3. Given two events A and B with P ( A ) = 0 . 4, and P ( B ) = 0 . 7, what are the maximum and minimum possible values for P ( A B )? 1.4.
