Q. 14

# Given the probability that A can solve a problem is 2/3, and the probability that B can solve the same problem is %, find the probability that(i)at least one of A and B will solve the problem(ii)none of the two will solve the problem

Given : Here probability of A and B that can solve the same problem is given , i.e., P(A) = and P(B) = P( ) = and P( ) = Also, A and B are independent . not A and not B are independent.

To Find: i) atleast one of A and B will solve the problem

Now , P(atleast one of them will solve the problem) = 1 – P(both are unable to solve)

= 1 - P( )

= 1- P( ) P( )

= 1- = Therefore , atleast one of A and B will solve the problem is ii) none of the two will solve the problem

Now, P(none of the two will solve the problem) = P( )

= P( ) P( )

= = Therefore , none of the two will solve the problem is Rate this question :
