Hello, scofield131!

In a group of students 90% are not studying Math or Physics,

7% are studying Math, and 5% are studying Physics.

A student is picked at random from the group.

(a) What is the probability that the student is studying Math and Physics?

(b) What is the probability of studying Physics

. . . given that the student is studying Math?

If we add the percentages, we have: .

Since the total must be 100%, there must a 2% "overlap" between Math and Physics.

The Venn diagram looks like this: Code:

* - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - *
