    There are two more assignments in a class before its end, and if you get an A on at least one of them, you will get an A for the semester. Your subjective assessment of your performance is

    Event Probability
    A on paper and A on exam .25
    A on paper only .10
    A on exam only .30
    A on neither .35

    a. What is the probability of getting an A on the paper?
    b. What is the probability of getting an A on the exam?
    c. What is the probability of getting an A in the course?
    d. Are the grades on the assignments independent?

    A on paper only .10
    A on exam only .30
    A on neither .35

    a. What is the probability of getting an A on the paper?

    Since there's a 0.25 probability of getting an A on both assignments and a 0.10 probability of getting just an A on the paper, then there's a 0.35 probability of getting an A on the paper. Just add the two probabilities together.

    b. What is ...
