The table below gives the probabilities of combinations of religion and political parties in a major U.S city.
Political parites Protestant (A) Catholic (B) Jewish (C) Other(D)
Democrat (E) .35 .10 .03 .02
Republican ( F) .27 .09 .02 .01
Independent (G) .05 .03 .03 .01
What is the probability that a randomly selected person would be a democrat who was not jewish?
The probability I got was .47, all I did was p(.35)+p(.10)+p(.02)= .47
but it just seems to easy.
