-he scores a goal (G) in 52% of his games
-he gets a penalty (P) in 49% of his games
-in 73% of his games, he scores a goal or his team wins (W).
-in 19% of his games, he scores a goal and gets a penalty.
-in 38% of his games, he scores a goal and his team wins.
-in 24% of his games, he gets a penalty and his team wins.
-in 12% of his games, he scores a goal, gets a penalty and his team wins.
A) in any given game, what is P(G or P)? Edit
P(G)=0.52 , P(P)=0.49 and P(G and P)= 0.19 [Given.]
P(G or P)=P(G)+P(P)-P(G and P)=0.52+0.49-0.19=0.82(Ans.)
