Your response: d: an event a will occur with probability 0. 5. The probability that both a and b will occur is 0. 1. The conditional probability of a given b is. 0. 3: 0. 2, 0. 1667, not able to be determined from the information given. Your response: c: event a occurs with probability 0. 35 and event b occurs with probability 0. 55.
