a) What is the probability that they win both contracts?

b) What is the probability that they lose both?

c) what is the probability that they win only one contract?

a) do I add the two chances 70+40 then divide it by 200?

b) same as A but with the losing percentages?

c)

Can someone help me with these ? Thank you.
