Problem 155SE

Problem 155SE

A group of men possesses the three characteristics of being married (A), having a college degree (B), and being a citizen of a specified state (C), according to the fractions given in the accompanying Venn diagram. That is, 5% of the men possess all three characteristics, whereas 20% have a college education but are not married and are not citizens of the specified state. One man is chosen at random from this group.

Find the probability that he

a is married.

b has a college degree and is married.

c is not from the specified state but is married and has a college degree.

d is not married or does not have a college degree, given that he is from the specified state.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution:

Step 1 of 3:

A group of men possesses the three characteristics of being married (A), having a college degree(B), and being a citizen of a specified state(c).

 Here 5% of the men possess all the three characteristics, 20% have a college education but are not citizens of the specified state.

                                 

If one man is randomly selected from the group.

 we have to find probability that

  1. He is married.
  2. He has a college degree and is married.

      (c)  He is not from the specified state but is married and has a college degree.

      (d) He is not married or does not have a college degree, given that he is from the specified state.
