Step 2

a.

The probability of the sum less than 3 or greater than 10 is given below:

Let A is the event of getting sum is less than 3 and B is the getting sum is greater than 10.

The frequency of sum is less than 3 is 10 and the total frequency is 1000.

The probability of getting sum less than 3 is 0.01.

The probability of getting sum is greater than 10 is 0.1...
