a. Find the probability that a randomly chosen person from this population will contract at least one disease in his/her lifetime.
b. Find the conditional probability that a randomly selected person from this population will contract both diseases, given that he or she has contracted at least one disease in his/her lifetime.
For a, I did P(I)+P(II)-P(I or II)=0.1+0.15-0.03=0.22
