Question 5

A random sample of 1000 voters was cross-classified according to income level and the political party they plan to vote for in an upcoming election. The results were as follows:

Middle (M) 300 140 20 460

Low (L) 60 100 20 180

Total 470 490 40 1000

One voter is selected at random.

Define the following events:

H = voter selected has a high income

M = voter selected has a middle income
