Question 15 Three events occur with probabilities P(E1) =0.35, P(E2) =0.15, P(E3) =0.40. If the event occurs, the probability becomes P(E1|B) =0.25, P(B) =0.30. Calculate P(E1and BB).
Question 16 The method of probability assessment that relies on an examination of historical data from similar situations is:
