question 1) order both milk and newspaper? Mr F says: It's easier to work in probabilities. Pr(M and N) = (0.74)(0.77) = .....

question 2) order atleast one of the two? Mr F says: Pr(M or N) = Pr(M) + Pr(N) - Pr(M and N) = ....

quetion 3) order neither milk nor newspaper? Mr F says: 1 - answer for question 2)

quetion 4) are the events ordering milk and newspapers independent? give reasons Mr F says: Does Pr(M) Pr(N) = Pr(M and N) .....?
