    Conditional Probabilities

    The records of Midwestern University show that in one semester, 38% of the students failed mathematics, 27% of the students failed Physics and 9% of the students failed mathematics and Physics. A student is selected at random.

    (a)If a student failed Physics, what is the probability that he or she failed
    (b)If a student failed Mathematics, what is the probability that he or she failed
    (c)What is the probability that he or she fails Mathematics or Physics?
    (d)Find the probability that he or she failed in none of the two subjects.
