 07-27-2007 #1 checked.cherry Guest   Posts: n/a Probability maths question???HELP!!!? In a golf match, Peter has 70% chance of hitting the green and Paula has a 90% chance. Find probability of:a) At least one hitting the greenb) Only Peter hits the greenAnswers: a=0.97 b=0.07 how did you get this? Detail please.

 07-27-2007 #3 stiffmeister Guest   Posts: n/a a) for this either only peter hits or only paula hits or both hithence three cases let event that peter hits is A so that he wont hit be A! similarly that paula hits is B and wont hit be B!now when only peter hits prob=p(A)p(B!)=.07when only paula hits prob=p(B)p(A!)=0.27when both hit its prob=p(A)p(B)=0.63hence total probablilty that alteast one will hit is .07+.27+.63=0.97b) only peter hits that is prob=p(A)p(B!)=0.07
