# In a sales effectiveness seminar, a group of sales representatives tried two approaches to selling a customer a new automobile: the aggressive approach and the passive approach. For 1160customers, the following record was kept:SaleNo SaleRow Total254326580AggressivePassive87580493Column Total4137471160passive approach, S = sale, N = no sale.Suppose a customer is selected at random from the 1160 participating customers. Let us use the following notation for events: A =aggressive approach, Pa =So, P(A) is the probability that an aggressive approach was used, and so on.(a) Compute P(S), P(S | A), and P(S | Pa). (Enter your answers as fractions.)P(S) =Enter a fraction, integer, or exact decimal. Do not approximate.P(S | A) =P(S | Pa) =sale and Pa =(b) Are the events Spassive approach independent? Explain.No. P(S) + P(S | Pa).Yes. P(S) = P(S | Pa).Yes. The two events can occur together.No. The two events cannot occur together.(c) Compute P(A and S) and P(Pa and S). (Enter your answers as fractions.)P(A and S) =%3DP(Pa and S) =(d) Compute P(N) and P(N | A). (Enter your answers as fractions.)P(N)P(N | A) =(e) Are the events N = no sale and A aggressive approach independent? Explain.Yes. The two events can occur together.No. P(N) + P(N | A).Yes. P(N) = P(N | A).No. The two events cannot occur together.(f) Compute P(A or S). (Enter your answer as a fraction.)P(A or S) =%3D
