Let A and B be two events such that P(A) = 0.32 and P(B) = 0.41.
a. Determine the probability of the union of A and B given that A and B are mutually exclusive.
b. Determine the probability of the union of A and B given that A and B are independent.
Recall that the formula for the union of two events is the following:
In this problem the probabilities of two events, A and B, are given. From this information, we find the probability of the union of the two events if:
1. The events are mutually exclusive.
2. The events are independent.
