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

Answer :

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
