An aquarium at a pet store contains 20 guppies (12 females and 8 males) and 36 tetras (14 females and 22 males). If the clerk randomly nets a fish, what is the probability that it is a female or a tetra?

Can it be both? 56 total fish 12 female guppies 36 tetras 12+36=48 so 48/56 If it cannot be a female tetra, 14 female tetra 48 previous possibilities 48-14=34 34/56
The answer is 6/7 so its both im assuming, thanks for the help.
Well, then 48/56= 6/7
