Problem 3

The probability that an earthquake will damage a certain structure during a year is 0.015. The probability that a hurricane will damage the same structure during a year is 0.025. If the probability that both an earthquake and a hurricane will damage the structure during a year is 0.0073, what is the probability that next year the structure will not be damaged by a hurricane or an earthquake?
