# Math Help - Probability proof

1. ## Probability proof

Q: If A and B are two events, prove that $P(A\cap\\B)\geq\\1-P(A^{c})-P(B^{c})$.

I am having a rough start with this one. Any direction would be much appreciated.

2. Replace on the right, $P(A')=1-P(A)$ and the similar equation with B.

Hence you need to show that

$P(A)+P(B)-1\le P(AB)$

On the left use that $P(A)+P(B)=P(A\cup B)+P(AB)$

So, you need to show that

$P(A\cup B)+ P(AB)-1\le P(AB)$

and that reduces to

$P(A\cup B)\le 1$ WHICH is where you should start this proof.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

$P(A\cup B)\le 1$

$P(A)+P(B)-P(AB)\le 1$

$\bigl(1-P(A')\bigr)+\bigl(1-P(B')\bigr)-P(AB)\le 1$

$1-P(A')+1-P(B')-P(AB)\le 1$

$1-P(A')-P(B')\le P(AB)$
