# Suppose A and B are mutually exclusive events in a sample space S, C is another event in S, A ∪ B ∪ C = S , and A and B have probabilities 0.4 and 0.2, respectively. a. What is P ( A ∪ B ) ? b. Is it possible that P ( C ) = 0.2 ? Explain.

To determine

The p(AB) for the given problem.

Explanation

Given information:

Sample space =S and three events A,B,C. Such that p(A)=0.4 and p(B)=0.2. And ABC=S where A,B are mutually exclusive events

To determine

Whether p(C)=0.2 or not.
