PROBLEM 3E

Let A and B be independent events with P(A) = 1/4 and P(B) = 2/3. Compute (a) P(A∩B), (b) P(A∩B' ),

(c) P(A' ∩ B' ), (d) P[(A ∪ B) ' ], and (e) P(A' ∩ B).

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 3E

Step1 of 3:

We have the events A and B are independent events.

P(A) =  and

P(B) =

We need to find,

(a) P(A∩B),  (b) P(A∩B' ),

(c) P(A' ∩ B' ), (d) P[(A ∪ B) ' ],

(e) P(A' ∩ B).

Step2 of 3: 

a).

Consider,

P(AB) = P(A)P(B)    [because we know that A and B are independent]

                 =

               =

               =

Therefore, P(AB) = .

b).

Consider,

P(A∩B' ) = P(A)P(B1)     [because we know that A and B are independent]

                  = [1-]

                =

                =

Therefore, P(A∩B' ) =  .

c).

Consider,

P(A' ∩ B' ) = P(A1)P(B1)    [because we know that A and B are independent]

                     = [1-] [1-]

                   =

 ...
