Question 15 The probabilities of A and B solving a problem independently are 1/3 π‘Žπ‘›π‘‘ 1/4 respectively. If both of them try to solve the problem independently, what is the probability that the problem is solved? Given, P(A) = 1/3 & P(B) = 1/4 Probability that the problem is solved = Probability that A solves the problem or B solves the problem = P(A βˆͺ B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B) Since A & B are independent, P(A ∩ B) = P(A) . P(B) = 1/3 Γ— 1/4 = 1/12 Now, P(Problem is solved) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B) = 1/3 + 1/4 – 1/12 = 4/12 + 3/12 – 1/12 = 6/12 = 𝟏/𝟐
