Default Help with probability problem

I need help solving this probability problem.

In 1999 the probabitlity that a randomly selected vehicle would be involved in a deadly tire-related accident was approximately 3x10 to the -6, whereas, the probability that a tire-related accident would prove deadly was 0.02. What was the probability that vehicle would be involved in a tire-related accident?

I don't get how to find 3x1- to the -6 also.
Thanks a million!
