    Let P(A) =.25 P(B)=.45 and the P(A&B)=.15 Find P(A or B)? Mr F says: Substitute the given data into a formula that you're expected to know and that will surely be in your notes. Where are you stuck?

    How many different words can be formed using all the letters in the word MISSING? Mr F says: This is a 'permutations with repeated elements' problem. Where are you stuck?

    Those two questions are so easy and basic, what have you done for yourself?
    At least, tell us what you don't understand about the questions.
