    can someone kindly help!!!

    Will appreciate help..


    1. A town’s planning department surveyed residents of a town about home ownership. The table shows the results of the survey.

    Residents At Address Less Than 2 Years At Address More Than 2 Years Total for Category
    Owners 2000 8000 10 000
    Renters 4500 1500 6000
    Total 6500 9500 16 000

    Determine the following probabilities:
    a) The resident owns the home.
    b) The resident rents and has lived at the present address less than two years.
    c) The homeowner has lived at present address more than two years.

    There are 10000 people who own their own home.

    4500 people "rent and have lived at the present address less than two years".

    8000 people "own and have lived at the present address more than two years".

    All of this is out of a total of 16000 people.

    Do you know how to calculate probabilities?
