We need to find,

a).The probability that the senator is a male Republican.

b).The probability the senator is a Democrat or a female.

c).The probability the senator is a Republican.

d).The probability the senator is not a Republican.

Step2 of 3:

a).

We have

53

Republican

45

Independent

Column total

Grand total =100

Now, The probability that the senator is a male Republican is given by

P(The senator is a male Republican) = P(MR)

                                                                         =

                                                                                     =

                                                                                     = 0.41

Hence, P(The senator is a male Republican) = 0.41.

Therefore, The probability that the senator is a male Republican is 0.41.

b).

We have

Male

Female
