Jessica must finish two courses (much like myself), statistics and economics, in order to complete the requirements for a BA degree. All along she has maintained an 80% average. She has calculated probabilities of scoring in the remaining two courses as follows:

Probability of scoring 80 in Statistics= 0.80
Probability of scoring 80 in Economics= 0.40
Probability of scoring 80 in both= 0.30

What is the probability that she will score 80 in at least one of her courses? What is the probability that she will NOT score 80 in either course?
