The following statement is false
Step-by-step explanation:
The following statement that The probability that event a or event b will occur is p(a or b) = p(a) p(b) – p (a or b) is false
The correct statement is The probability that event a or event b will occur is p(a or b) = p(a) p(b) – p (a and b)
Addition Rule: The probability that event A or event B happens is equal to the probability that A happens plus the probability that B happens minus the probability that both happen. If events A and B are mutually exclusive, then the probability that event A or B happens is simply the sum of the probabilities.
