    4.13 Each month a brokerage house studies various companies and rates each

    Low Risk
    Moderate to High Risk

    6
    9
    Food retailer

    10


    If we randomly select one of the total of 40 companies, find
    a. The probability that the company is a food retailer.
    b. The probability that the company's stock is "Iow risk."
    c. The probability that the company's stock is "moderate to high risk."
    d. The probability that the company is a food retailer and has a stock that is "Iow risk."
    e. The probability that the company is a food retailer or has a stock that is "Iow risk."

    it seems obvious to me that these problems will affect your grade in a class somehow. in which case we cannot offer you any specific help, but only (maybe) very general guidelines. in what capacity are you allowed to receive help for these? show what you have attempted for these problems
