Hello. Can I get help on how to calculate this question? If there is also a way to use the TI-83 graphing calculator, it would be helpful! Thank You!

 

usan asks her neighbor to water a sickly plant while she is on vacation.
Without water, the plant has a 0.8 probability of dying. With water, the
plant has a 0.15 probability of dying. Suppose she is 90% certain that
her neighbor will remember to water the plant. What is the probability
that the plant will be alive when she returns?

Step 2

Obtain the probability that the plant will be alive when Usan arrives:

The probability that neighbour remember to water the plant is P(Watered) = 0.9.

The probability that neighbour forgets to water the plant is P(Not watered) = 0.1.

The probability that the plant dies without water is P(plant died | N...
