Q. 615.0( 1 Vote )

If P(A) = 0.4, P(B) = 0.8 and P(B | A) = 0.6, then P(A B) is equal to
A. 0.24

B. 0.3

C. 0.48

D. 0.96

Correct

Answer :

We have,

P(A) = 0.4, P(B) = 0.8 and P(B|A) = 0.6


We know that,


P(B|A) × P(A) = P(B A)


0.6 × 0.4 = P(B A)


P(B A) = 0.24


Now,


P(A B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A B)


[Additive Law of Probability]


= 0.4 + 0.8 – 0.24


= 0.96


Hence, the correct option is D
