    I am having issues resolving the following and need extra help please:
    1. If the probability that it will rain tomorrow is 0.26, what is the probability that it will
    not rain tomorrow
    2. Find the probability of getting a number greater than 4 when a die is rolled one time
    3. An apartment building has the following apartments available for lease.
    1 bedroom 2 bedrooms 3 bedrooms
    1st floor 1 2 2
    2nd floor 2 2 2

    apartment OR is on the second floor
    4.If 25 tickets are sold and 2 prizes are to be awarded, find the probability that one
    person will win both prizes if that person buys exactly 2 tickets
    5. When two events are independent, the probability of both occurring is:
    A) P(A and B) = P(A) + P(B)
    B) P(A and B) = P(A + B)
    C) P(A and B) = P(A)â?¢P(B)
    D) P(A and B) = P(Aâ?¢B)

    Hi there,

    Thanks for allowing me to work on your questions. Here are my answers:

    1. since rain and not rain are mutually exclusive, the probability of not rain P=1-P(rain)=1-0.26=0.74.

    2. Since there are only 5, 6 that are greater than 4 ...
