  4. Examples

    P(not green) = 1 - .15 = ?

    Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.

    P(blue or orange) = P(blue) + P(orange)

    If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

    P(both orange) = P(orange)^2

    P(none orange) = (1-.23)^3

    "at least one" = 1, 2 or 3 are orange. Use methods above.

    Online "^" is used to indicate an exponent, e.g., x^2 = x squared.

  5. you can just as easily consider the % values as integers.

    Then just count the ones you need, out of 100
